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 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), with a strengthened qualification due to be introduced from September 2019 and amid calls for different levels of QTS to be introduced.


They will also consider the future of 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.
