Professional Development Newsletter
There never seems to be a time where change is not on the education agenda. Curricular change is, clearly, high on everyone's list at the moment - and rightly so - but since the Donaldson report and the McCormac report we may be about to face further changes. For example, Masters level study from ITT level onwards is something Donaldson would like to see eventually. However, this newsletter deals with more immediate change. The short film of Sir Ken Robinson discusses change in education and its implications.
How to Change Education - from the ground up
New Professional Standards
In the light of changing contexts in Education, the GTCS announced new Professional Standards last December and these came into effect on August 1st. Clearly they affect all of us. Post- Donaldson there appears to be greater need to engage with the standards as part of Continuing Professional Development. The link and the short film should give you an update on any changes and why they were made.
