Doug Specht formally awarded Chartered Teacher status at the London Guildhall

4 July 2022

This week Doug Specht was formally awarded Chartered Teacher status at the London Guildhall. While Specht had gained this award in 2021 alongside his Advanced Teacher Status, the covid pandemic delayed the official ceremony until this month.

The postponed graduation ceremony was held in London’s Guildhall, and was attended by teachers and leaders from across the country. Specht was recognised for their expertise and teaching achievements with the formal accreditation. Specht joined 181 individuals graduating with Chartered Status, receiving his recognition from Prof. Dame Alison Peacock, Chief Executive of the Chartered College of Teaching.

Chartered Status recognises the knowledge, skills and behaviours of highly accomplished teachers and school leaders. The focus on developing high-quality teaching and leadership practice benefit the education of students, colleagues and broader society. Individuals working towards Chartered Status undertake a rigorous series of assessments and examinations and have the opportunity to showcase their expertise.

Over 1,600 people have set out on their journey to gain the sought-after Chartered Status. Half of those earning Chartered Status said they received a promotion, while over 90% said it improved their teaching.

Dame Alison Peacock, Chief Executive of the Chartered College of Teaching, said:  “Our graduates should be proud of their success in achieving Chartered Status. Their hard work is to be lauded, especially in the shadow of a pandemic. We hope graduates will share their knowledge to benefit our schools, students, and society. They deserve to be celebrated.”
