New Teachers' Standards were introduced from 1 September 2012. The standards set a clear baseline of expectations for the professional practice and conduct of teachers, from the point of qualification. They replace the standards for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), Core Standards and the GTCE’s Code of Conduct and Practice for Registered Teachers in England. The Teachers’ Standards will be used to assess all trainees working towards QTS and all those completing their statutory induction period.
