Initial teacher education in England - future for QTS, teaching apprenticeships and best practice provision

Morning, Tuesday, 26th June 2018

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This timely seminar will discuss the future for initial teacher education (ITE) in England.


Delegates will evaluate key priorities for the future shape of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) following the opening of the Department for Education consultation on plans to strengthen QTS from September 2019 by introducing an extended programme of early career support and development.


They will also consider the way ahead for post-graduate teaching apprenticeship - launching from September 2018 following the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy - including the possible take-up, its impact on subject specialism for teachers, and issues around levels of pay for those taking this route.


Further sessions will bring out best practice examples of ITE provision - looking at school, Teach First and university led routes - in addition to assessing steps that can be taken to ensure accountability of ITE providers.
