Abstract

"The Welsh Government is consulting on proposals to introduce a replacement for the Criteria for Initial Teacher Training Accreditation by the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales 2006, as amended. This would introduce revised requirements for the provision of initial teacher training courses in Wales. They would include statutory requirements for the assessment of trainees’ personal literacy and numeracy skills and ensure that the teaching of literacy and numeracy forms an integral part of initial teacher training courses. The proposals include a number of supporting changes and updating amendments. Similar requirements are also proposed for the Employment-based Teacher Training Scheme 2012 when implemented. The introduction of this scheme was consulted on previously between 11 November 2011 and 31 January 2012; the Minister for Education and Skills announced on 19 March 2012 his intention to proceed with a new employment-based teacher training programme which would require the implementation of the 2012 Scheme" - inside front cover.
