GTCNI opens Regulation Consultation


The General Teaching Council for Northern Ireland is inviting teachers and educationalists to respond to an online consultation which seeks their views in relation to how it intends to meet its statutory obligations, enabling teachers to regulate their profession and deal with misconduct within the profession.

This will be the first time the teaching profession will have the privilege and responsibility for self-regulation. The Council therefore wants to ensure openness and transparency with respect to the proposed processes through which these powers will be exercised.  

The Council will consider all the responses to the consultation. This will assist in ensuring that it can meet its statutory regulatory responsibilities in the most efficient way possible, while maintaining the confidence of the teaching profession and wider public interest.

The consultation opens 9 January 2017 and closes 6 March.
