In our fourth podcast, Jim talks with Cat Scutt. Cat, a huge water lover and Cornish resident, is the Director of Education and Research for Teacher’s professional body, the Chartered College of Teaching (CCT). In the conversation Cat talks about the work and aims of the CCT, her role and how the organisation provides a valuable link between research and practice, while championing and acknowledging the fantastic contribution teachers make to children’s lives and society as a whole. This is of huge significance now and Cat will also share what the CCT are doing to support teachers during this challenging period.

3. 07:10 The CCT’s mission is to: celebrate, support and connect teachers to take pride in their profession … bridging the gap between practice and research and equipping teachers … with the knowledge and confidence to make the best decisions for their pupils. Could you provide some examples of how this is achieved please?
