Remove Quango interference in how teachers teach/work

Comment 6th July 2010

The Institute For Learning (IFL) is just an unnecessary organisation that Further Education teachers are obliged to join, just so that they can record any training or CPD that they have engaged in.  Why is this necessary?  it is just  another layer of form-filling bureacracy that wastes time that FE teachers should be using in planning and teaching.

Also, OFSTED appears to be treating Further Education Colleges as if they are schools.  Instead treating college students as trainee adults, we are being forced to treat them more like little children.  Much of what ofsted requires of schools is unsuitable for colleges.

Why does this matter?

Teachers need to be allowed to do their job without constant interference by people who seem to have no real understanding of what teaching involves.
