    1. Delighted to be able to talk to you all today My role here means that I spend too much of my time ploughing through mountains of paper, rather than working with people. QA statistical data, OfSTED internal evaluations from schools, students Student evaluations highpoint of the course nearly always the school placements great. Learnt most from support and advice from mentors. Partnership but in many ways you are the most significant partners. Its what you do that makes the most difference. A large partnership about 50 tutors and well over 1000 mentors Important that we all work together on developing the partnership and improving the quality of our ITE courses. ITE not ITT.

    3. The new QTS Standards Three inter-linked sections: Professional attributes Professional knowledge and understanding Professional skills 33 standards at QTS (compared to 42 old QTS Standards) Experienced mentors got quite used to the old standards QtT Some may remember previous versions 4/98 bring the most notorious highly prescriptive.

    13. Assessing the standards for QTS

    14. Consistency in assessing student teachers against the standards Is your good the same as my good? How good is very good? Can any student be very good on a first placement? New Grading Descriptors

    15. Equality and Diversity Two parallel challenges 1. We need to recruit and retain a more diverse group of student teachers Cultural Diversity Support Tutor Yaa Asare y.asare@bton.ac.uk 2. All our student teachers need to be better equipped to meet the standards relating to diversity. (e.g. Q18, Q19 & Q20) Personalised learning and teaching Working on these things for a couple of year The Teaching workfoirce should reflect the diversity of society. But it soesnt many groups are under-represented! 2% of teachers are from BME groups when more like 12% of pupils are. Really gain from the Mention partnership survey Working on these things for a couple of year The Teaching workfoirce should reflect the diversity of society. But it soesnt many groups are under-represented! 2% of teachers are from BME groups when more like 12% of pupils are. Really gain from the Mention partnership survey

    16. Equity and diversity e.g. Q18, Q19, Q20: The new QTS standards

    17. We need to better prepare students to teach pupils of different abilities teach pupils from minority ethnic backgrounds work with children with Special Educational Needs work with children with EAL NQT Survey NQT Survey

    18. For consideration in subject groups Grading descriptors How can these be used to moderate judgements? How can these be used to raise the grades of student teachers? Equity and Diversity What different training opportunities can be provided? How can we work towards more equitable school-based experiences?
