The Teachers Disciplinary Tribunal has found a teacher guilty of serious misconduct in relation to multiple allegations.

It found that she failed to ensure the required teacher/student ratios as head teacher of a centre, falsified records at the centre as to checks made when she had not made those checks, failed to engage in professional, respectful and collaborative relationships with colleagues, provided false information in her job application and CV regarding her experience, provided false verbal information during her interview as to her referee’s status (that the referee was a centre manager when they were not even a qualified teacher), procuring false information from referees and providing false information regarding her current employment status.

The Disciplinary Tribunal found that these were flagrant breaches which undermined professional standards of behaviour and integrity.  It found that her fraudulent behaviour warranted having her registration cancelled.  The teacher was struck off the register of teachers.
