Education Select Committee follow -up to Great teachers: attracting, training and retaining the best

The Education Committee has decided to hold a short inquiry to follow up its 2012 report Great teachers: attracting, training and retaining the best, focussing primarily on the School Direct programme and on proposals for a College of Teaching.

BERA recently made a submission to this Inquiry. The submission focussed on our concerns over the implementation of School Direct and some initial thoughts about the proposed College of Teaching.

The BERA/ RSA Research and Teacher Education Inquiry also made its own submission drawing on its own work. These, along with all the other pieces of written evidence, have now been published and can be seen here:
