Opposition Day — Qualified Teacher Status — 29 Jan 2014 at 18:52
The majority of MPs voted against requiring all teachers in all state-funded schools to have, or be working towards, Qualified Teacher Status.
The motion rejected in this vote was:
- That this House
- believes that no school system can surpass the quality of its teachers; and therefore
- resolves that all teachers in all state-funded schools should be qualified or working towards Qualified Teacher Status, be undertaking ongoing continuing professional development and have their skills and knowledge re-validated throughout their careers in order to support them to excel in the classroom, to improve learning outcomes for all children in all schools, to uphold discipline in the classroom, to tailor their teaching to children with special educational needs and to close the attainment gap between disadvantaged children and their peers.
