TSP is soon to launch a suite of T-ITaP modules to meet the new Initial Teacher Training
(ITT) Intensive Training and Practice (ITaP) requirement. TSP’s T-ITaP modules have been
carefully designed and tested to offer opportunities for trainees to engage with realistic
scenarios focusing on foundational aspects of the ITT curriculum. TSP’s T-ITaP modules are built on a solid foundation of recent and relevant research.
This talk focuses on how civic and social studies education
curricula and school-based experiences can help young
people learn how to live together justly in diverse
societies. Drawing on the concept of critical harmony, I
make a case for a conception of social and civic education
that moves beyond focusing on the rule of law, on social
contracts, on human rights, and on issues of justice and
equity, but instead centres relationality, balance,
reciprocity, and mutual accommodation.
Measuring Quality in Initial Teacher Education (MQuITE) was a six-year, Scottish Government-funded
study which involved co-investigators from all 11 University providers of ITE along with the General
Teaching Council for Scotland. The project sought to address two research questions:
1. How can quality in ITE be measured in a Scottish, context-appropriate way?
2. What does this measuring tell us about aspects of quality in different ITE routes in Scotland?
UCET is pleased to respond to the call for evidence for the review of the Early Career Framework (ECF) and the Core Content Framework (CCF).
This evidence should be considered alongside that submitted by our member institutions, the higher education institutions involved in initial and continuing teacher education, and educational research.
The Universities Council for the Education of Teachers (UCET) offers scholarships of up £2,000 to allow colleagues from UCET member institutions to investigate aspects of teacher education or undertake educational research in one or more overseas universities/HEIs or, from this year onwards, for colleagues from overseas HEIs to undertake research in partnership with UCET member institutions. The scholarships are named in honour of our former Academic Secretary Gordon Kirk, and are supported using funds generously donated by the former trustees of the Hewett Driver Trust.
