CONDITIONS have been imposed on a teacher who has been found guilty of unacceptable professional conduct which means he can continue teaching.

The conditions, imposed by the General Teaching Council (GTC) on Roger Wagner who was teaching at All Saints Catholic School, West Wickham, at the time of the incidents complained of will remain in place for two-and-a-half years.

Findings just published following a disciplinary hearing say that Mr Wagner failed to submit pupils' sample coursework to the school's examination officer on time; failed to submit sample coursework an external moderator as agreed with the school's examination officer; failed to obtain proof of receipt when hand-delivering sample coursework; failed to ensure that pupils had signed their coursework cover sheets; and deliberately misled colleagues about the location and progress of the coursework examination documentation despite repeated requests for more information.

Now the GTC disciplinary panel has ruled that he must not have sole responsibility for the administration and management of external examinations; must not have responsibility for administration and management of coursework without supervision; must provide the registrar of the GTC by July 31 and thereafter on an annual basis a report countersigned by his current head teacher to confirm the arrangements for his supervision in respect of course work.
