Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

The effect of this amendment is to enable teachers who teach in nursery schools, special schools and in further education to stand for election to the General Teaching Council for Wales, whereas, previously, the wording of the General Teaching Council for Wales (Constitution) Regulations 1999 did not permit them to do so.

For this purpose, “teachers” means a teacher qualified within the meaning of section 218(2) of the Education Reform Act 1988; or, once a register of teachers is established by the General Teaching Council for Wales, a registered teacher.

These Regulations amend the General Teaching Council for Wales (Constitution) Regulations 1999 so that the elected members of the General Teaching Council for Wales will comprise :

(a)four teachers of junior pupils (persons under 12 years old);

(b)four teachers of senior pupils (persons of 12 years or over);

(c)four head or deputy head teachers.

(1)

1998 c. 30; for the meaning of “prescribed” and “regulations” see section 43(1). Section 1(5) and (7) and Schedule 1 have effect in relation to the General Teaching Council for Wales by virtue of the General Teaching Council for Wales Order 1998 (S.I. 1998/2911).

See the National Assembly for Wales (Transfer of Functions) Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/672).
