Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

This Order amends the General Teaching Council for Wales (Additional Functions) Order 2000 (“the 2000 Order”). That Order requires the General Teaching Council for Wales (“the Council”) to maintain records relating to specified categories of persons.

The amendments made by this Order require the Council to include in the records the date on which a person was first employed as a supply teacher in accordance with the provisions of the Education (Induction Arrangements for School Teachers) (Wales) Regulations 2003 as amended by the Education (Induction Arrangements for School Teachers) (Amendment) (Wales) Regulations 2004. This will enable the Council to monitor whether a person is permitted to continue in employment as a supply teacher under those Regulations. Those Regulations impose limits on the periods during which a person who has not served an induction period may be employed as a supply teacher.

This Order also makes other minor amendments to the 2000 Order.

It restricts the particulars of a person’s academic and professional qualifications included in the records to qualifications that are relevant to employment as a teacher.

It also makes amendments consequential on the Education Act 2002, replacing references in the 2000 Order to the Education Reform Act 1988 with references to the 2002 Act.
