Parents in Wales, have your say on the future of education with two open consultations.
1. Revised Code of Professional Conduct and Practice for registrants with the Education Workforce Council (EWC)
The Education Workforce Council (EWC) is holding an event in Cardiff City Centre on 7th December 2018 for parents to help shape its draft revised Code of Professional Conduct and Practice for registrants with the Education Workforce Council.
The Education Workforce Council (EWC) is the independent regulator in Wales for school teachers and other professionals working in education.
About the Code
The Code sets out the standards expected of our registrants with the EWC and is intended to help and guide your behaviours and judgements both inside and outside of work. However, it also provides an important safeguard for learners, parents and the general public as it sets out what they can expect from anybody working in teaching and learning in Wales.
Under the Education (Wales) Act 2014, the EWC is required to review the Code every three years and, if appropriate, make revisions to it. The EWC is consulting with the education workforce, the general public and other interested parties, including parents, between September and December about the revised Code. A copy of the consultation document and draft revised Code may be found on the EWC website.
If you would like to attend the consultation event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 30th November to register your interest.
2. Welsh Government wants your views on their Draft Guidance to Challenge Bullying in Schools
Welsh Government has opened a consultation on their draft anti-bullying guidance and toolkit, which has been developed to prevent and challenge bullying in schools. The consultation provides an opportunity for parents to give their views on the government's proposals to date and is open until 15th February 2019.
Full details on the guidance and how to respond can be found on the Welsh Government website.
