Dr Adam Hounslow-Eyre, Senior Lecturer in Education Studies at Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU), joined other Founding Fellows of the Chartered College of Teaching (CCoT) at the Houses of Parliament on Monday 21 January 2019.
Alongside Professor Dame Alison Peacock (Chief Executive of the CCoT), the group addressed the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on the Teaching Profession making the case for accreditation of pedagogic skills and knowledge as a profession development route for teachers in addition to existing National Profession Qualifications.
Dr Hounslow-Eyre first became involved in the Chartered College following on from his role as regional network coordinator for the Cambridge Primary Review Trust before becoming a founding fellow. Speaking after the group’s meeting with the APPG he described his excitement at the positive impact it could offer:
“It was a great opportunity to engage with a range of stakeholders at national level; and the proposal was warmly received”
BGU representation was strong at the APPG with Dr Nick Gee, Head of School of Teacher Development, also in attendance.
