Teachers to be judged by peers

5th August 2011 at 01:00

A new group of teachers in England will be recruited to discipline members of the profession who have committed serious offences, the Department for Education has announced. A team of 30 people will be responsible for regulating the workforce as part of a new system which replaces the General Teaching Council for England next year. Hearings will be run by the new Teaching Agency, which replaces the GTC and the Training and Development Agency for Schools from April 1, 2012.
