The Centre for Teacher Education is celebrating 75 years of training teachers. This milestone symbolises the passion, ambition and commitment the department has towards training generations of teachers in the past, present and future, helping them to become the teachers they want to be with the expertise and support of CTE staff.
Over the summer, CTE colleagues have been working with Bo Kelestyn and Gwen Van Der Velden from Warwick Business School to create a ‘recognition of prior learning’ Postgraduate Certificate for a Ukrainian Educational Leadership Summer School. The module received course approval from EPQ over the summer and will enable a progression route to the CTE MA in Professional Education for attendees.
Educators around the world will be able to train remotely for a new UK government-backed international teaching qualification with the University of Warwick – one of only six pilot providers selected by the Department of Education (DfE).
Perhaps, from the style of my writing, you might think that I have embarked on something new and this is an account of my wide-eyed discoveries. That is not the case. I’ve been teaching for twenty-five years. The landscape through which I have travelled in my working life has been populated by young people who have no idea how good they really are or what a massive contribution they could make to the world. Or how much we need them to do just that.
This year, the Centre for Teacher Education (CTE) celebrates 75 years of training teachers. The milestone symbolises the passion, ambition and commitment of the department to train generations of new teachers, helping them become the teachers they want to be with the expertise and support of staff in CTE behind them, from the day they begin their training to entering their teaching career and beyond!
