The ETF congratulates those graduating with Chartered Teacher Status

The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) extends its warm congratulations to the teachers and trainers who graduated with Chartered Teacher Status over the weekend. The graduation ceremony took place on Saturday 2 July 2022 at Guildhall, London, to celebrate the achievements of the 2021 cohort.

Within this cohort were individuals who have attained Advanced Teacher Status (ATS), an advanced badge of professionalism in Further Education awarded by the ETF’s professional membership body, the Society for Education and Training (SET). In total, 180 individuals have achieved ATS since 2017, including 61 in this calendar year.

Chloë Hynes spoke passionately about her journey to ATS: “I am proud to be here today with my fellow ATS peers. Being conferred with Chartered Teacher Status as well as ATS is a new and important opportunity for those of us in FE seeking parity with other areas of the education sector, in recognition of our achievements.” You can read more of her thoughts here

Martin Reid, Director of Professionalism and Customer Experience at the Education and Training Foundation also addressed attendees and said: “You’re all here today because you have met the rigorous standards required to be awarded Chartered Teacher Status. Pursuing and maintaining those high standards and improving the quality of your teaching is essential to the success of our sector – and it’s a central part of our work at the ETF and SET.” 

Since 2019, all those who achieve ATS are automatically conferred with Chartered Teacher Status, bringing greater alignment of professional status across different educational contexts.

Jenny Jarvis, Interim CEO at the ETF, said: “We are delighted to congratulate all those who have graduated with Chartered Teacher Status. Attaining this status is a fantastic achievement, requiring significant time and dedication. Those who have made this investment in their professional development are driving up teaching standards and enhancing professionalism across the education sector. They are able to deliver the best for their learners, and in turn they are transforming communities, and broader society, through education.”
