Abstract

TDA QTT Handbook Accompanies Qualifying to teach: Professional standards for qualified teacher status and requirements for initial teacher training Handbook of guidance 2006 edition Handbook of guidance 3 Introduction This handbook accompanies Qualifying to teach: Professional standards for qualified teacher status and requirements for initial teacher training. The standards and requirements in Qualifying to teach give providers flexibility in the way they design their programmes, and encourage the use of professional judgement. The purpose of this handbook is to help providers as they exercise that judgement and to help them maximise the opportunities for development that Qualifying to teach offers. It aims to help everyone involved in initial teacher training (ITT) to understand the aims and scope of both the standards and requirements. The guidance is non-statutory and will be kept under review. If your copy is over six months old, check the TDA website www.tda.gov.uk/qualifyingtoteach for any more recent updates. The TDA welcomes comments on how the handbook might be improved: please send comments to [email protected] The handbook is in two sections. The first gives guidance on the standards for the award of qualified teacher status (QTS) and will be of particular interest to ITT providers, their partner schools, trainee teachers and employers. It includes suggestions about the kind of evidence trainees might provide to show that they meet the standards. The second section covers the requirements for ITT and is intended mainly for ITT providers, although it may also be of interest to trainee teachers and others. The guidance includes details of other sources of information; in future these will include additional exemplification materials and case studies. In the web version of the handbook there are direct links to many of these sources. 4 Handbook of guidance Contents Introduction to the handbook 3 Standards for the award of qualified teacher st
