[holding answer 15 march 2010]: We have received representations via correspondence from MPs, teachers’ unions and members of the public about our proposals to introduce the licence to practise.

We are continuing discussions with teachers’ unions through our social partnership and with the General Teaching Council for England (GTCE) to ensure that we design a licensing system which will bring real benefits to the profession.

Subject to the passage of Children, Schools and Families Bill, we remain committed to holding a public consultation on our detailed proposals for the licensing arrangements which will be set out in draft regulations in the spring.
