Developing Training Schools: An Evaluation of the Initiative
Beardsworth, Roy; Lee, Malcolm
Journal of In-service Education, v30 n3 p361-370 Sep 2004
This article considers the background to the development of training schools in England and examines some of the impact that these schools have had on the initial training programmes of teachers. It also considers some of the effects this initiative has had on the professional development of teachers in such schools. The article is based on work undertaken by the authors as part of their duties as officers of the Standing Committee for the Education and Training of Teachers (SCETT) to monitor the development and effectiveness of the training schools by visiting a wide sample of these newly designated schools in spring 2002. The authors also used the report of the Office for Standards in Education inspectors based on their inspection role in training schools to compare and contrast their own findings. The thrust of the paper is built up from the observed perspectives of the designated schools visited as part of their work.
