Jackson, Phil; Serf, Jeff
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v50 n1 p127-136 2008
September 2007 saw the introduction of the new "Q" standards for the award of Qualified Teacher Status. Drawing on a meeting of 140 primary and secondary school ITT tutors, this article sets out to record and discuss the teachers' initial reactions to these new standards a few weeks before their introduction. The article shows classroom teachers have significant concerns about a significant minority of the standards and this indicates that HEIs and other ITT providers now have a challenging management of change agenda.
