Welsh GTC: The story so far

23rd March 2001 at 00:00
The General Teaching Council for Wales is an independent body which came into being last September.

The council aims to provide an independent, representative and authoritative voice for the profession in Wales on teaching issues; to raise the status of teaching; and maintain and promote the highest standards of professional conduct.

It has 25 members, 12 of whom were directly elected by teachers. Nine members were appointed by the Welsh Assemby following nominations from the teaching unions and other educational bodies. Four members are direct appointments of the Assembly.

The chair, Professor John Andrews, was appointed by the Assembly, initially for two years.

Elected members serve for four years, appointed members for three.

The GTCW is based in Cardiff but holds meetings throughout the principality.
