Teachers could get chartered status.

A GROUP of teachers are taking part in an innovative education pilot scheme to create 'chartered teachers' in Wales.

The Chartered Teacher Programme is being developed by The General Teaching Council for Wales (GTCW) to provide experienced teachers with the chance to receive professional recognition for their teaching achievements.

Teachers from North Wales are currently doing an extended pilot to ensure the programme is fully refined before it is launched later this year.

The assessment, due to be completed in February 2010, will be a school-based project designed to enable participants to reflect on how their school caters for pupil diversity.

Acting head of modern foreign languages at Flint High School Sarah Mason, who has been a teacher for eight years, has decided to explore the issue of young carers for her assessment.

Working alongside Barnardos, Sarah will examine how young carers can be identified at school, and how they can be supported.

Sarah said: "I want to examine what sort of support network we, as a school, can implement, and how we can help young carers to help themselves.

"The issue of young carers is something that is often overlooked by teachers, and therefore I feel my project will really help bring around some tangible benefits to students at the school.
