The Founding Fellowship (FCCT) is an accolade held by some of the most committed teachers and leaders who have shown a significant and sustained contribution to the teaching profession and their own professional development.
The highest and most prestigious category of membership at the Chartered College, it is a formal recognition and celebration of ongoing contributions to the profession.
In an email announcing the news to Julie, Joe Treacy from the Chartered College of Teaching said: “Fellowship is an honour and a mark of your achievements and commitment to the teaching profession. We were impressed by the strength of all applications and in particular your experiences and what you would bring to the Fellowship as a Founder. You are now entitled to use the postnominals FCCT, which I would wholeheartedly encourage you to use.”
Commenting that she was ‘flattered’ to receive the FCCT, Julie said: “It’s an opportunity to give back to a profession that’s been a big part of my life for thirty years. I’m looking forward to having an input into future educational developments.”
Headmaster Mark Tottman said: “Julie has inspired a whole generation of pupils to love history, to ask questions and to think about the past in different ways. She is a dedicated and reflective teacher who thoroughly deserves this prestigious award.”
Under Julie's leadership, in 2017 Dunottar School’s history department was the first senior school in Surrey to be awarded the gold Historical Association Quality Mark, an award that recognises the excellence of history provision in a school.
