As promised, here is a quick reflection on the future of initial teacher education post the unveiling of the White Paper yesterday. There was little new information contained, and we’ll have to wait to the Department for BIS white paper in January before a clearer picture emerges. However, the Universities’ Council for the Education of Teachers has recently published a press release which contains a very good reflection on the key points. I am very happy to make this available here.
I’ve also been given a copy of a speech given by James Noble-Rogers at a recent conference run by the Standing Committee for the Education and Training of Teachers which, whilst a bit longer, is a very interesting read.
