WORLD TEACHERS’ DAY-TEACHERS ARE THE BEATING HEART OF A WORLD CLASS EDUCATION SYSTEM

WORLD TEACHERS’ DAY-TEACHERS ARE THE BEATING HEART OF A WORLD CLASS EDUCATION SYSTEM

 

On World Teachers’ Day the NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union has called on UK Governments and administrations to take the steps to ensure every child is taught by a qualified teacher who has the pay, working conditions, training and support they need to make the fullest possible use of their professional talents, knowledge and expertise.

 

The Union is setting out the principles it believes must be in place to ensure our education systems across the UK recognise and develop teachers as professionals.

 

The Union believes this requires:

  • high-quality initial teacher training;
  • all teachers working in state-funded schools to be in possession of qualified teacher status (QTS);
  • senior leaders in schools who are qualified and accredited as teachers;
  • career-long continuous professional development for all teachers and school leaders;
  • a move towards teaching as a Masters-level profession; and
  • a commitment to ensuring that teachers are remunerated appropriately.

 

Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT said:

 

“Qualified teacher status represents the means by which parents and the public can be assured that children are receiving a guaranteed standard of teaching and learning. It is the entitlement of all children and young people to be taught by a qualified teacher.

 

“Respect for the professionalism of teachers is a hallmark of an education system that is genuinely committed to raising standards and extending educational opportunities for all learners.

 

“A national framework of professional requirements and standards, underpinned by a framework of professional terms and conditions of service, is critical to ensuring quality for all children and young people.

 

“Yet when we look across the UK, we see in every administration, year-on-year cuts to teachers’ pay, spiralling workloads and the undermining at school and national level of teachers’ professionalism, skills and knowledge, exacerbated by the demands of the high-stakes accountability system.

 

“This is leading to an exodus from the profession, a scandalous waste of talent which is damaging children and young people’s entitlement to a world class education.

 

“On World Teachers’ Day, which this year is dedicated to the theme of empowering teachers, the NASUWT is calling on governments and administrations to recognise that this world class education starts with creating the conditions by which teaching is a high status, attractive profession where teachers have an entitlement to ongoing training and pedagogical development and working conditions which support them to focus on teaching and raising standards for every child.”

NO COMMENT ON THE CRITICAL ISSUES FACING EDUCATION

NO COMMENT ON THE CRITICAL ISSUES FACING EDUCATION

 

Commenting on the speech by Justine Greening, Secretary of State for Education, to the Conservative Party Conference, Chris Keates General Secretary of the NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, said:

 

“The most striking thing about the speech was the absence of any substance.

 

“Teacher supply is in crisis as a result of plummeting pay levels and the escalating workload blighting the profession.

 

“Children and young people being denied their entitlement to be taught by a qualified teacher are facing an increasingly narrow curriculum and for too many their access to educational opportunities is based on their parents’ ability to pay.

 

“Yet the Secretary of State makes no comment on any of these critical issues facing education, so paralysed is this Government by Brexit.

 

“The most notable issue in the speech is the reference to the plans for early years, which although light on detail, appear to signal that at last the Government has recognised that the axing of early years provision over the last seven years, through the closure of hundreds of sure start centres, was a deeply flawed policy.”

END TO 1% PAY CAP

NASUWT WELCOMES END TO 1% PAY CAP

 

Responding to the publication of a letter by Liz Truss, Chief Secretary to the Treasury, to Dr Patricia Rice, Chair of the Schools Teachers’ Review Body (STRB), setting out the terms of reference for the teachers’ 2018/19 pay award, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, said:

 

“The NASUWT has campaigned for the removal of the 1% public sector pay cap since it was imposed on teachers and we therefore welcome the Treasury’s decision not to continue with a further year of the 1% pay cap in 2018/19.

 

“However, scrapping the pay cap is not enough; the Government must also address the culture that has developed in many schools that seek to avoid rewarding teachers fairly and appropriately. There is a significant risk that the pay freeze will continue in some schools, even without the constraints of a 1% cap imposed by the Government.

 

“Last year, the combined effect of the Government’s pay cap and inappropriate pay freedom in schools meant that the average pay award for classroom teachers was just 0.6%.

 

“The Secretary of State now needs to act to curb the discretion that allows schools to continue to pay teachers as little as they feel they can get away with.”

PRIMARY ASSESSMENT PROPOSALS

NASUWT COMMENTS ON PRIMARY ASSESSMENT PROPOSALS

 

Commenting on the statement by the Secretary of State for Education setting out proposals to reform the system of primary assessment, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT-The Teachers’ Union, said:

 

“It is important to recognise, and as the NASUWT has stated consistently, that many of the concerns expressed about statutory primary assessment are the direct result of their use in the current high stakes school accountability regime.

 

“The NASUWT therefore continues to call on the DfE to work with teachers to reform the primary school accountability framework to tackle its adverse implications for pupils and staff in schools.

 

“The Union is clear that the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile in its current form is not fit for purpose and creates significant and unnecessary assessment and record-keeping burdens for teachers. The NASUWT therefore welcomes proposals to review the Profile and looks forward to engaging with the DfE on the details of its plans.

 

“The NASUWT has always stressed that progress measures are, in general, a more effective and equitable indicator of the contribution schools make to the achievement of pupils than those focused on assessment. The Union therefore accepts that there is a need for an on-entry assessment to establish a benchmark for evaluating future pupil progress, but these assessments must be administered in ways that are manageable for schools and do not create additional workload burdens for teachers and school leaders.

 

“While in principle the abolition of statutory KS1 assessments is welcome, this will be largely meaningless if these tests are still available to schools on a non-statutory basis. Continuing to make these tests available would represent a poor use of public money. If these tests are no longer to be compulsory, then they must be scrapped altogether.

 

“While the removal of some statutory teacher assessment at KS2 is welcome, the NASUWT remains disappointed that the DfE intends to persist with externally moderated teacher assessment of writing at Key Stage 2. Although the DfE plans to introduce amendments, the Union is concerned that many of the problems that have beset this assessment since its introduction in 2012 will continue in future.

 

“The plan to pilot reforms to the assessment of pupils with special educational needs and disabilities must be undertaken carefully. As the NASUWT warned at the time, Government reforms to the National Curriculum were driven through without effective consideration being given to how this curriculum would be assessed. A stark consequence of this recklessness is that arrangements for assessing pupils with SEND have still not been finalised. For too long the needs of pupils with SEN have been an afterthought, rather than part of a unified approach to the curriculum and assessment which strives to meet the needs of all pupils.”
