EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order makes amendments and revocations to secondary legislation consequential upon the abolition of the General Teaching Council for England (GTCE) by section 7 of the Education Act 2011 which came into force on 1 April 2012.

Article 2 amends the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 (Regulated Activity, Miscellaneous and Transitional Provisions and Commencement No. 5) Order 2009 so that the Independent Safeguarding Authority (ISA, formerly IBB) can, following the abolition of the GTCE, provide information to the Secretary of State that may be relevant to disciplinary investigations of teachers working in England.

Article 3 and the Schedule revoke references in secondary legislation that relate specifically to the General Teaching Council for England to the extent indicated in each case.

In relation to the General Teaching Council (Registration of Temporary Teachers from Relevant European States) (England and Wales) Regulations 2009, these are revoked in relation to England only. The effect of the revocation is that teachers from EEA States or Switzerland who are working in England are no longer required to register with the GTCE in order to be able to carry out teaching work in England, or to be subject to the same disciplinary provisions as teachers registered in accordance with section 3 of the Teaching and Higher Education Act 1998. Instead, since 1 April 2012, all qualified teachers, including teachers who have qualified overseas, are able to work in England on a temporary basis under the provisions of the Education (Specified Work) (England) Regulations 2012, and all teachers that are working in England will be covered by the disciplinary regime in sections 141B to 141E of the Education Act 2002.
