Teaching Agency and National College set to merge to create single agency focused on teaching and school leadership
Education Secretary Michael Gove announced today that the Teaching Agency and National College for School Leadership will merge to create a single agency, focussed on promoting high-quality teaching and school leadership.
This move is the next stage in Government’s reform programme to raise standards in schools, with the best leaders and best teachers working together to develop a self-improving school system.
The new agency will lead on delivering school workforce reforms. Its remit will include teacher training, continuous professional development and supporting school improvement to address underperformance in the education system. It will build on the best from the Teaching Agency and National College, and will work in new ways to support the school-led system.
The new agency will formally come into effect by the end of March 2013.
