NCTL referral is dismissed at the first stage

NCTL referral is dismissed at the first stage

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 concerning professional misconduct.  Our client was accused of acting in a dishonest manner by proving incorrect information on her CV. Our client had good reason for taking the steps that she had and on preparing written submissions for her, her case was presented, at the first stage, to the Determination Panel for consideration. We assisted our client throughout the process and managed to obtain a successful outcome for her where the Panel concluded that there was no further case to answer and closed the case. It was relevant to the Panel that our client showed remorse and was truthful from the outset. Through our advice and submissions, the Panel noted that any further action by the NCTL would be disproportionate.

Much to her delight, our client was therefore not required to stand before a Professional Conduct Panel and is now free to continue with her teaching career.

Testimonials

We were very happy to hand over our case to Match Solicitors and allow them to do what they do best - they won our appeal. They make no guarantees but at least you know, whether you win or lose, they have done their best for your child.

Mr & Mrs O'Dea, Surrey

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

Exemplary, professional, supportive, and empathetic. Polite and responsive. A pleasure to work with.
