Forthcoming induction appeals committee hearings

Members of the education professions, the press and the public can attend oral hearings of an Induction Appeals Committee of the Education Workforce Council, and a small number of observer places are available for this purpose. If you wish to attend as an observer, you are asked to contact the Council on 029 2046 0099. In attending an oral hearing, observers are asked to bear in mind the following points:

  • Hearings are subject to sudden cancellation or postponement. Those travelling long distances are advised to confirm that a hearing is still taking place by telephoning the Council on or shortly before the day of the hearing;

  • Hearings are held in public in accordance with the Human Rights Act. However, a School teacher can request that all or part of a hearing be held in private. The Committee will consider any such request on the day of the hearing. All or part of a hearing may be held in private. Where all or any part of a hearing is held in private, this will not be open to observers.

If you are a member of the press and wish to attend an appeal hearing listed here, you must contact the Council in the first instance on 029 2046 0099. Should you not do so in advance of the hearing date, the Council cannot guarantee your place as an observer.

Further information for hearing observers can be found here . This information is general, and in all circumstances, the Education (Induction Arrangements for School Teachers) (Wales) Regulations 2015, and the Council's   Guidance for the Hearing of Induction Appeals  take precedence.
