Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These regulations make further amendments to the Education (Teachers) Regulations 1989, as amended by the Education (Teachers) (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 1989.

A small drafting amendment is made to regulation 3(1)(b).

In paragraph 9(1) of Schedule 1 (General Transitional Provisions) the prohibition on the employment, without the consent of the Secretary of State, of a teacher who has failed probation under previous regulations is extended to grant-maintained schools and special schools not maintained by a local education authority.

In Schedule 2 (Designated further or higher education institutions) an amendment relating to the location of Northern College has been made.

In paragraph 2(2)(c) of Schedule 5 (Qualified teachers and transitional provisions relating to qualified teachers) the provision for award of qualified teacher status after one term’s service as a licensed teacher has been extended to cover persons who have successfully completed a first degree course and a post-graduate course of initial teacher training at an educational institution outside England and Wales, and have been employed for not less than one year as a teacher or lecturer without being dismissed on grounds other than redundancy.

In paragraph 2(3)(a) of Schedule 6 (Probation) a qualification is added to the exemption from the requirement to serve probation for teachers with two years' service in a city technology college or city college for the technology of the arts, to the effect that the teacher’s appointment must not have been terminated on grounds other than redundancy.

Paragraph 4(2) and (3) of the same Schedule are amended to reflect the fact that the governing body of an aided school is the employer of its teachers, although the local education authority is the relevant body for determining whether or not a teacher at such a school has satisfactorily completed probation.
