    ... for graduates already working in a school to complete under their current employer. I've seen worse initiatives. Today.

    So we will know them because they are tachers not teachers?

    Or is this the 'Ease' free way into teaching (or taching)

    The world needs givers as well as tachers. This must be what they're calling the new generation of teachers who are obsessed with their hourly rate.

    You can probably become a brain surgeon in 12 weeks

    Doesn't mean to say you can do it though does it.

    There is a view in some of the circles which I frequent that says you need or have already a hierarchy of teachers who will be teaching in a paid capacity starting at £3.50 an hour and moving upwards.

    Apprenticed UG
    Unqualified Grad
    Self assessed QTS only
    QTS only other
    Apprenticed Grad with prof cert
    QTS with prof cert
    QTS with PGCE
    QTS with PGDE
    QTS with Masters
    QTS with Masters and CTEACH

    Instead of all teachers having a PGCE and QTS and accessing national pay and conditions we have a major cut in overall teacher pay. Academies can then reduce their hiring costs substantially but also prevent the majority from accessing TLRs, leadership posts etc., by insisting they have qualifications that were not available on their route into teaching or that they don’t have the skills to obtain.

    It's almost as if there's some sort of funding crisis in education isn't it? `What next, the health service running out of cash?

    Getting them in is the easy part.

    Getting them to stay is what really matters.

    I wonder if fellow tessers are as vigilant with their school marking as they are on the forum :)

    I think the point is made with tachers instead of teachers. Not quite teachers then!

    Yes. Or perhaps being "an e short of a teacher" is like being "a sandwich short of a picnic". There are parallels.

    Or ... maybe the only way to get these tachers into teaching is to give them an e!

    That is terrifying. But not surprising. I'm rubbish at Maths but have taught English with a PGCFE, plus a top university BA and MA, for twenty years. They would say I'm not fully qualified, wouldn't they? I mean, if this discrimination keeps up, there will be a class action to stop it. Or schools will just be so, so under and badly staffed, results will all have to be forged just to stay in the game. Standards ....my left rump cheek! Also what in earth is a CTEACH? Sounds like Kryton's girlfriend from Red Dwarf....

    Several es, I reckon. I despise academy bosses and the 'DFE thick.'

    Nope, this is far more fun. And I don't really mark now, it is flecking lovely!
