A Conservative Party spokesman has said the government is willing to look at any proposals which will "genuinely improve the quality of teaching", after Labour unveiled plans for teachers to be licensed. The spokesman added:
We have already taken action by allowing heads to remove teachers from the classroom in a term, as opposed to a year previously, and scrapping the three-hour limit on classroom observations.
We are improving teacher training, expanding Teach First and allowing heads to pay good teachers more. Thanks to our reforms, a record proportion of top graduates are entering the profession.
