The Chartered College of Teaching (CCT) is the professional body for teaching – working to celebrate, support and connect teachers in providing the best possible education for children and young people.
Montessori Group’s well-established partnership with CCT demonstrates our ongoing commitment to support early years professionalisation and broaden the range of quality resources available to practitioners and educators from all areas of the education sector. Early years practitioners are vital to the holistic early development of children, yet too often they face a lack of resources and professional development opportunities. The various elements of this partnership seek to bridge that gap.
Our collaborative work includes:
- Supporting CCT to create the Early Childhood Hub, which provides professional resources, insight and guidance for the early years community. The Hub provides a wealth of resources, including case studies on pedagogy and practice, videos and interviews with early years practitioners on play, engagement, cognitive development and diversifying the Early Years curriculum, plus the latest research summaries and Impact articles on wellbeing, curriculum and supporting learning.
- Offering the MCI graduate community free CCT membership via the Montessori Global Education Network. Membership is designed for qualified teachers working with children and young people aged 0-19. Members get termly copies of Impact, invitations to exclusive webinars and events, and access to all online content on MyCollege. Members also become eligible to use the postnominals “MCCT”, to stand and vote in CCT Council elections, and work towards becoming a Chartered Teacher.
