THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar is bringing together stakeholders and key policymakers to 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 closure of the Department for Education consultation on plans to strengthen QTS from September 2019 - including proposals for an extended induction period, a structured early career content framework and stronger mentoring provision.
They will also consider the way ahead for the 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 and evaluating international examples of ITE provision.
