So the government have decided to fast track teacher training. Many of the present crop of NQTs (Newly Qualified Teachers) that turn up at M's school aren't much good in practical terms. They've been trained in theory but in practice they flounder. Now, the new course is meant to be for high flyers, although it's pretty obvious from part of the announcement that it's seen as a way of getting those made redundant back in to work quickly.

Maybe people don't mind if teachers are underprepared to teach. It's a lot harder than it looks though. But think if the government wanted to fast track doctors? Would you want to go to a doctor who 6 months earlier had been a city trader and had been fast-tracked or someone who had spent the full term training?

  • Indeed.

    The possibility of steady long-term employment after only six months training, might be very attractive to some. And that's NOT the reason to go into teaching.

  • Mauritius, an island off the coast of Africa and close to Madagascar, is a beautiful holiday destination and a great place to rent a quality villa. It is not hard to see why it is popular with couples on their honeymoon and families who want a luxury holiday, as the island has crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches. location villa ile maurice
