Teacher with allegations by NCTL allowed to continue with teaching career

Teacher with allegations by NCTL allowed to continue with teaching career

We recently acted for a Teacher who was being pursued by the National College of Teaching and Leadership (“the NCTL”) after allegations were made against her for professional misconduct, and, conduct which would bring the profession into disrepute. Our client was, understandably, highly distressed as to the allegations, which was added to by the fact that proceedings of this nature are heard in public. We were able to secure a private hearing for our client which, in turn, reduced the stress of the process and subsequent hearing for her.

We went on to instruct Counsel and assist our client throughout the hearing where the Professional Misconduct Panel found that the NCTL had not made out their case. The Panel took the opportunity to recognise the good work that our client had achieved at the school, especially in light of the intensely stressful nature of the proceedings. Our client is now free to continue with her teaching career.

Testimonials

Match Solicitors were highly recommended to us not only for their undisputed comprehensive knowledge of the SEN legal minefield, but for their understanding of autism and other disorders and consequent compassionate work ethic. Their diligence and consummate professionalism ensured that the Local Authority were forced to take our son’s case seriously. It is almost impossible to articulate how grateful we are to Rishi and Anita for their hard work and dedication.

Mr & Mrs Williams, Hertfordshire

Whilst the SENDIST appeal process requires patience and clarity, we found Match Solicitors provided a faultless service. Diligent whilst being understanding. Our son is now in the school we required and is thriving due to the support of Match Solicitors throughout the process.

Mr D Cameron, London

I wouldn’t hesitate to use your firm again in the future, and will also happily recommend you to others requiring help.

Mrs Shaistah Siddiq-Zeidan, Exeter
