FE Teacher and Trainer Qualifications Review Consultation Event
31 October 2012
One of the main recommendations from the interim report of the Independent Review of Professionalism led by Lord Lingfield, was a review of the FE and Skills teaching qualifications. This review will be led by LSIS, working collaboratively with the sector.
The review is taking place in three phases: in phase one, LSIS carried out a series of initial conversations with employers, sector membership bodies and other stakeholders to inform the scope and focus of the review and develop proposals for new qualifications. During phase two LSIS is now seeking views and comments from the sector on the proposed changes. This took take place between 15 October and 26 November 2012.
Finally, phase three will provide an opportunity for those with a detailed knowledge of qualifications to get involved in a series of expert working groups to support the development of the qualifications and the associated guidance.
As part of phase two UCU, together with the UCET Post-16 Committee, held a consultation event in October 2012
