Fitness to Teach Panel Hearings
Where a referral is made by the Investigating Committee, a Fitness to Teach Panel Hearing will be heard. This is held to determine whether or not an applicant or a registered teacher is considered fit to teach.
The hearing will determine whether or not a person adequately meets the standards of professional conduct and competence laid down in the GTC code of conduct.
The Fitness to Teach Panel comprises a minimum of 3 people made up of registered teachers and at least one lay person.
The two main categories of Fitness to Teach Panels relate to either Complaints or to Probationary Service.
