This chapter discusses the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) professional misconduct hearings to which the Clarke Report gave rise. The NCTL hearings represented the first opportunity for the individuals who had been named in the investigation reports and in the media as part of a plot to Islamicise schools to respond, yet they had to do so in the context of widespread assumptions of their guilt. Ultimately, there have been fundamental flaws in the NCTL case and of the investigations leading up to it. The first is associated with a failure properly to consider the context of the affair. PVET was accused of introducing an Islamic curriculum and practices. However, there is no evidence that this was outside the guidance provided by many local authorities and other bodies.

Keywords:   NCTL, professional misconduct, Clarke Report, Islamification, Islamic curriculum
