Position

Alastair has successfully acted for both teachers and head teachers in misconduct proceedings brought by the Teaching Regulation Agency (formerly the National College of Teaching and Leadership). As a School Governor for 13 years between 2000 and 2013, Alastair has an in depth knowledge of the teaching profession, the behavioural standards expected of teachers and the approach taken by members of the TRA’s Disciplinary Panels to disciplinary hearings. In a recent case, Alastair successfully argued that all 20 allegations of unreasonable professional conduct against his client were “not proven”, thereby ensuring that the Panel did not progress to the second stage of the process to determine whether a Prohibition Order was appropriate in the circumstances of the case.
