Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Education (Teachers) Regulations 1982. They are made under section 218 of the Education Reform Act 1988 (“the 1988 Act”) which supersedes section 27 of the Education Act 1980 (1980 c. 20). They reflect the new distinction between further and higher education resulting from the amendments to section 41 of the Education Act 1944 (1944 c. 31) made by the 1988 Act (regulations 3, 6 and 7 of the principal Regulations). They also apply the provisions of the principal Regulations (except those relating to the probation of schools teachers) to grant-maintained schools. Further, they extend the meaning of “relevant employment” to cover employment as a teacher or as a worker with persons under the age of 19 at institutions within the Polytechnic and Colleges Funding Council funding sector. “Relevant employment” is relevant for the purposes of health standards for appointment and continued employment and for the purposes of the Secretary of State’s powers to bar persons from relevant employment on medical, misconduct, and, in the case of teachers, educational grounds. The lists of institutions designated as assisted or grant-aided in Schedule 3 to the principal Regulations have been revised (regulation 3) and finally a small correction is made to the definition of “probationary teacher” in paragraph 1 of Schedule 6 (regulation 4).
