Alderwasley Deputy Head Awarded Fellowship Status at the Chartered College of Teaching
Congratulations to Paul Burrows, Deputy Headteacher at Alderwasley Hall School and Sixth Form who was awarded Fellowship status at the Chartered College of Teaching in December 2019. The Chartered College of Teaching, is the recognised professional body for the teaching profession.
Of the half a million or so teachers currently registered in the UK and eligible to become members of the Chartered College, there are less than 750 who have been awarded Fellowship status.
The charter states “We want to recognise the commitment and achievements of the teaching profession. Fellowship (FCCT) of the Chartered College of Teaching is an accolade held by some of the most committed teachers and leaders who have shown a significant and sustained contribution to the teaching profession and their own professional development. As the highest and most prestigious category of membership at the Chartered College, it is a mark of your achievements, skills and expertise as a teaching professional. Additionally, it is a formal recognition and celebration of your ongoing contribution to the profession, and comes with a range of benefits. As a Fellow, you will be encouraged to support members and other teachers to engage with and promote the use of evidence.”
Paul is the first teacher within the SENAD Group to hold this accolade. Paul said:
“It all started with a tweet!
Dame Alison Peacock messaged me in May 2019 liking my Twitter descriptor and saying that she “embraces my positivity about teaching”. Since then I have applied for and become a Fellow of the Chartered College of Teaching. The values of the Chartered College are ones which I firmly uphold, namely: to improve the quality of education for children and young people by supporting teachers, championing great teaching and raising the status of the profession.”
