Education Act 2002

Section 119 & Schedule 11: School Teachers' Review Body

253.This section affirms the continued existence of the School Teachers' Review Body (STRB) set up under the STPCA. The arrangements will continue to apply to England and Wales. The section also provides that the members of the STRB will be appointed by the Secretary of State, rather than by the Prime Minister as under the STPCA. This will bring the appointment of members of the STRB into line with similar bodies, reflecting the general move away from Prime Ministerial appointments. The Chairman of the STRB will, however, continue to be appointed by the Prime Minister. Schedule 11 reflects consequential changes. The Schedule recasts Schedule 1 to the STPCA and makes minor simplifications and modifications to it. Matters covered are STRB membership, arrangements for the appointment of a chairman and deputy chairman, resignation and dismissal arrangements, payments to members and proceedings of the STRB.
