Teaching Accreditation

Over the last few years, we've been increasing the amount of resources we put into teaching. We have run a number of teaching events, and are running a number of "introductory" events to youngsters, generally through the "gifted and talented" programme.

In doing this, two issues turned up:-

  • who is a good teacher? (and please bear in mind that this is NOT necessarily related to strength)
  • legal issues associated with child protection legislation.

In order to resolve these issues, we set up a Teaching Accreditation Scheme to fill the gap.

It is stressed that participation in all aspects of this scheme is entirely voluntary (except as required by UK Legislation). There is no requirement or compulsion on anyone to become accredited, and members are free to continue to visit schools (or other youth groups) of their own volition if agreed with the school/youth group itself. However, some members may wish to become "accredited" by us as it may ease their way through local bureaucracies.

The teachers accredited (or part-accredited) under the scheme are:

In addition to this list we also have a page describing some people providing teaching services.
