Children will have access to higher quality lessons as their teacher is accepted into a prestigious international fellowship.

Sarah McGarr, assistant headteacher at Chase High School in Westcliff, has become a Fellow of the Chartered College of Teaching.

The accolade gives the teacher and her colleagues access to new professional development opportunities to upskill teachers and improve the quality of lessons.

There are just 1,300 Fellows across with the world, with 75 per cent of them being serving teachers.

Mrs McGarr, who can now use FCCT after her name, said: “The fellowship allows me to host and attend round table discussions with other Fellows, discussing the landscape of teaching and learning nationally, as well as being invited to parliamentary discussions around the future of teaching and responses to new government launched initiatives.

“It’s an honor to be recognised and to have the privilege of joining this group of inspirational leaders who are pioneers within education.

“I very much look forward to networking with other school leaders, both locally and nationally, to identify how we can work together to continue to improve the education industry, with a real focus on the quality of teaching and learning our students are receiving.”

Aimee Tinkler FCCT, vice president of Membership Committee, said: “Nomination and the award of Fellowship recognises commitment and achievement within the teaching profession and is an accolade held by some of the most committed teaching professionals who have shown a significant and sustained contribution to both the profession and their own professional development.

“It is a mark of skills, achievements and expertise and a formal recognition and celebration of ongoing contribution.”
