General Teaching Council for Wales (Disciplinary Functions) (Amendment No.2) Regulations 2009 come into force

Implementation date: 7 September 2009

The Regulations prescribe that in certain circumstances the functions of an investigating committee of the General Teaching Council for Wales are excluded. The circumstances are where the Welsh ministers or the Secretary of State wish to consider a case with a view to exercising powers under s.142 of the Education Act 2002, or if the Independent Barring Board have included or want to consider including a teacher in the barred lists maintained under the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006. The latter provision comes into force on 12 October 2009. The Regulations can be viewed on the OPSI website.
