TAILORED REVIEW OF THE TEACHING REGULATION AGENCY
Updated: Sep 21, 2020
The Department of Education has just published an extensive review of the Teaching Regulation Agency.
The Teaching Regulation Agency was established in 2018 to support schools, head teachers and employers with safeguarding responsibilities. The agency is responsible for taking action on allegations of serious teacher misconduct and supporting employers to complete pre-recruitment checks to ensure they employ appropriately qualified teachers.
The report concludes that the main objectives established during the set up of the agency have been achieved and makes recommendations to further strengthen the work of the agency. This includes seeking and acting on customer and stakeholder feedback to improve its service and learning from other regulators on how best to measure performance.
