This new registration process by the IFL is a total waste of public money. All teaching staff have to pass a criminal record check, so why do they need a register? we are told it is to record individual teacher's professional development, why? When OFSTED monitor this element in their inspection process.
This registration has been free for the initial 2 years… but no doubt ALL teachers will have to pay for it in the near future…another TAX !!!!!!!!!
Why does this idea matter?
This is fundamentally a red tape admin process, which has no use whatsoever to teaching staff, infact it has become a joke……..we call ourselves MIFL's as we have full membership to this organisation.None of my colleagues use this very complicated web site except for ONCE a year,when we HAVE to register our professional development time, which takes about 30seconds!
