    GTPs are, in my experience, the weakest teachers. Those who've gone to do 'proper' teacher training in a university - BEd or PGCE - understand education much better on the whole.
    I know nothing about Gove's teacher training plans, but if they resemble GTP rather than PGCE then things will only get worse.
    Perhaps others have a different perspective.
     
  4. I guess this one is variable. In one London authority that I worked in the GTP "programme" was a disgrace, with low grade candidates given third rate training by failed teachers from the LA. In my current authority, the standard is excellent.
    I think GTP is excellent, IN THEORY...... the execution can be questionable though.
