THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar is bringing together stakeholders and policymakers to discuss the future of initial teacher education (ITE) in England.
The seminar will be an opportunity to discuss key priorities for the future shape of ITE following the recent publication of the Department for Education’s initial response to its consultation on strengthening QTS and improving career progression for teachers - which sets out plans to improve the support available to teachers early in their careers.
Delegates will assess the potential impact of proposed measures - including the introduction of an extended induction period for new teachers of two years, a structured early career content framework and the introduction of a formal mentor for new teachers - as well as further action which might be taken in this important area.
They will also consider the next steps 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 assess the viability of calls from the universities and the Chartered College of Teaching for tuition fees to be waived for trainee teachers, as well as discussing steps that might be taken to ensure accountability of ITE providers and examining best practice examples of ITE provision in schools - both in the UK and internationally.
