New standard to recognise ‘Master Teachers’

8th January 2012

A new ‘Master Teacher Standard’ to recognise outstanding teachers should be introduced, according to an independent review commissioned by the Government. The award would be given to those who have a “deep understanding of their subject specialisms, going beyond the programmes they teach”. Teachers would also have to have gained the respect of both parents and pupils and be highly regarded by colleagues to become known as "master teachers".
