The advice provides information on professional conduct panels

The advice provides information on professional conduct panels which are held as a result of teacher disciplinary action and for the purpose of the regulation of teacher conduct. The guidance concentrates on factors to be taken into account when deciding if a prohibition order on a teacher should be made following a finding of:

  • unacceptable professional conduct.
  • conduct that may bring the profession into disrepute.
  • conviction, at any time, of a relevant criminal offence.
The guidance was published on 31 October 2015 by the National College for Teaching & Leadership and a copy can be accessed here.
