Qualified teachers for every child

Bring back the right for children in state funded education to be taught by qualified teachers. Michael Gove removed this entitlement at the end of July.

Why is this important?

Qualified teachers have completed a rigorous training programme which ensures they hold appropriate prerequisite qualifications and that they are prepared for and have met national standards to teach. Following the Michael Gove's change, there are now no safe guards in place to ensure children have appropriately trained and qualified teachers. This flies in the face of international research and best practice which shows the best education systems have teachers who have completed lengthy and rigorous pedagological training.

Reasons for signing

  • To protect standards in education, Britain is sixth in the world, removing the need to be qualified is a tactic to devalue teacher input and pay them less.
