The Government are seeking views on revisions to the current version of the ‘Teacher misconduct: the prohibition of teachers’ advice.

This consultation asks several questions and sets out revisions relating to how professional conduct panels review teacher misconduct in England.

The proposed revisions provide clarification on the factors relating to decisions leading to the prohibition of teachers from the teaching profession.

Your views matter as this advice sets out the arrangements for the regulatory system relating to teacher misconduct which operates within a legislative framework that came into force on 1 April 2012.

The advice sets out the factors to be considered by a professional conduct panel convened for the purpose of the regulation of teacher misconduct.

Its primary purpose is to inform panel considerations, findings and recommendations to the Secretary of State whether to impose a prohibition order on a teacher.
