Since 1849 we have shaped the face of education from the establishment of teacher training, to creating the first chair of education in England, to developing certification for school children, to supporting the professional work of others who work in education.
As the professional college for teaching in the United Kingdom we support the teaching profession through networks of membership and qualifications.
Our Members include
primary, secondary and special educational needs teachers lecturers university staff teaching assistants industrial trainers local authority managers and governors
both in the UK and around the world. Many specialist associations, agencies, colleges and schools also belong to The College as Institutional Members.
Everything we do is driven by a commitment to raise standards in education and improve learning for all.
