The Chartered College of Teaching, the new independent and voluntary body for the teaching profession, is seeking to appoint eight classroom teachers to join its governing body as trustees from the Autumn term.

The College is specifically looking for classroom teachers with experience in one or more of the following fields: effective teaching and learning, professional development, research and evidence based practice, delivering projects around improving student outcomes and mobilising knowledge and sharing best practice within or between schools.
