Professional Association Memberships
The College does not undertake costs for individual’s professional memberships.
The College may decide to have a “College Membership” with an association where this would be deemed efficient in allowing a group of employees access to the associations resources.
It is a stipulation of contract that all new teaching staff joining the college should be working towards their licence to practice and ATLS or QTLS (dependant on job role). It is compulsory that all staff new to teaching complete an initial teaching qualification within twelve months of their start date.
Calderdale College requires its entire teaching staff regardless of start date or contract type to be working towards completion of the PGCE/Cert Ed or equivalent.
Further information relating to the FE reforms and professionalisation of the sector is available through the Institute for Learning (IfL) and Lifelong Learning UK (LLUK) websites. If you are unsure of your route to gaining a licence to practice please contact the Staff Development Officer.
