The Coalition government has radically transformed teacher education in England. Schools are now in the forefront of teacher training. More learning is ‘on-the-job’. Increasing numbers of teachers are unqualified and various schemes encourage fast tracks into teaching from other jobs and professions. Labour has recently proposed its own response – a teacher licensing scheme – while some leading educators are calling for a Royal College of Teaching. Meanwhile, experienced teachers are leaving the profession citing increasing workloads,stress, and bureaucracy.
Whatever the political colour of the next government, what should its policies for the teaching profession look like? How should teachers be recruited, trained, supported and rewarded and regulated?
