What is the Disciplinary Tribunal? 

The Tribunal is a disciplinary decision-making body, independent of the Teaching Council. When a matter of teacher conduct is referred to the Tribunal by the Complaints Assessment Committee (CAC), a formal process culminating in a hearing takes place. The CAC is the prosecuting body, represented by a lawyer. The teacher can represent themselves or may have a lawyer or representative to present their case.
