Opposition Day — Government Education Policies — 29 Jan 2014 at 18:52

The majority of MPs voted to note, acknowledge, recognise and register elements of the Government's education policies by approving the following motion:

  • That this House:
  • notes that the Coalition Government is committed to raising the quality and status of teaching;
  • acknowledges the significant progress made since 2010 in achieving those aims;
  • recognises that the part of the Coalition led by the Deputy Prime Minister believes that all state-funded schools should employ teachers with or working towards Qualified Teacher Status;
  • also recognises that the part of the Coalition led by the Prime Minister believes that free schools and academies should retain the freedom to hire the best teachers regardless of whether they hold Qualified Teacher Status; and
  • registers the fact that the number of teachers without Qualified Teacher Status has fallen under this Government.”

There is nothing substantive in this replacement motion; there are no calls for action.
