Fellowship recognises significant contribution of teachers and leaders to the profession. Most prestigious membership offered by the professional body for teaching.
Carter Community School is delighted to announce that one of its Associate Assistant Principal’s has been awarded Fellowship status by the Chartered College of Teaching. Simon Maguire has received membership of this prestigious organisation in recognition of his teaching achievements, skills and expertise.
To become a Fellow, Simon had to demonstrate his experience and expertise in teaching and show how he has made a significant and sustained contribution to the teaching profession. Simon has a wealth of experience in teaching having taught History in an international school in the United Arab Emirates for ten years. He was also a PGCE mentor for the University of Sunderland as part of which he supported trainee teachers through their training.

Commenting on being awarded the Fellowship, Simon said:
"It is an honour to be admitted as a Fellow to the Chartered College of Teaching. The values of the Chartered College are ones which I firmly believe in; namely to improve the quality of education for children and young people by supporting teachers, championing great teaching and raising the status of the profession. My primary focus is to ensure that our students are best prepared for their life-long learning journey, but I also look forward to using my experience in the international, private and state education sectors to contribute to future developments in education policy and reform."
Congratulating Simon, Professor Dame Alison Peacock, Chief Executive of the Chartered College of Teaching, said:
“This richly deserved recognition is given to highly experienced colleagues working across the profession. Our Fellows have an important role to play in raising the status of teaching and supporting teachers to be the best that they can be. I look forward to our work together.”
