Update on new qualifications for teachers and trainers: April 2013
Following the first report from Lord Lingfield in October 2012, BIS asked LSIS to lead a review of the teaching qualifications working closely with employers and stakeholders in the sector. This short article provides an update on development of both the generic teacher training qualifications and the specialist qualifications for teachers of English, ESOL, mathematics and disabled learners.
Teacher Training Starter Kit
The Teacher Training Starter Kit offers you a range of resources and links to support literacy, ESOL and numeracy teacher training. The resources were produced by Skills for Life programmes between 2003 and 2010 and by the teacher training providers participating in these programmes.
The Recent trends in the initial training of teachers of literacy, numeracy and ESOL for the further education sector in England (NRDC, 2010) report describes recent trends in the initial training of teachers of literacy, numeracy and ESOL for the further education sector in England.
