Has the GTP gone now?

Discussion in 'Trainee and student teachers' started by robby64, Jan 22, 2012.

  1. Nobody knows for sure. GTP providers have had smaller allocations year on year and have recently been asked to think about converting to SCITTs. The future is a little uncertain, but nobody has come out and said it will stop.

    There is a great deal of uncertainty around all ITT routes. many universities are having to cut back on PGCE and undergrad places this year. It has been assumed that GTP will be continuing as the curent commitment is to train teachers in school but at the moment the final funding of GTP has not been confirmed for next year. It is likely that the amount of Government funding will be reduced in some way with more emphasis on schools to meet any deficit. Many "old hands" like me are of the view that there will be future teacher shortages as a result of these patchy and inarticulate policies
