Chartered Teacher of English

A new professional designation for teachers of English

The Royal Seal attached to the Charter - Queen Elizabeth riding a horseSeptember 2012 saw the introduction of a new designation for teachers -  Chartered Teacher of English [CTE].

The status of Chartered Teacher confers a professional distinction on its holder in recognition of a high level of general expertise in the subject area, as well as indicating an ongoing commitment to personal professional development.

The designation is ratified by the English Association whose Royal Charter, granted in 2006, enables it to do so on behalf of the whole English subject teaching community.

Membership of one of the recognised professional English subject associations - EA, NATE, UKLA and NAEE - is an essential requirement for CTE status.

If you have an English degree or equivalent, have been teaching English for at least four years, have an ongoing commitment to CPD and embed your professional development in your teaching, you are an ideal candidate for CTE.
