R (on the application of Lonnie) v National College for Teaching and Leadership

Education – Teachers. The appellant teacher appealed against the Secretary of State's decision, imposing a prohibition order with a period of review at two years. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the appeal, held that the Secretary of State had not been required to follow the contrary recommendation of the respondent National College for Teaching and Leadership's professional conduct panel. Accordingly, the Secretary of State had not been wrong in reaching the decision that the panel's recommendation should not be followed.
