star this property answer text <p>The Department regularly assesses demand from the sector, how well different Initial Teacher Training (ITT) routes attract trainees and trainee quality by route. Sir Andrew Carter also considered this issue in his independent Review of ITT. <br> <br> It is too early to carry out a final comparison of the new routes into teaching. We would need data on their trainees’ impact in the classroom, which is not yet available for our new routes. The first full cohort of School Direct trainees have, for example, only been teaching for one term. <br> <br> The Department has, however, recently initiated a project to link together the School Workforce Census and 2013/14 ITT performance profiles in order to piece together teachers’ professional journeys from ITT into employment and their subsequent progression. In time, with the addition of further data, this will enable us to look at the influence of different ITT routes on teacher employment, mobility, progression and retention.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>It is the responsibility of individual primary schools to ensure that teachers get appropriate continuing professional development in all relevant subjects, including mathematics. The Department for Education is committed to improving the mathematical ability of primary teachers and we have put in place a number of measures to support schools; in particular with implementing the new mathematics curriculum.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) is responsible for coordinating and quality assuring teacher professional development across all phases and works actively to support the underpinning mathematical knowledge of primary teachers. The NCETM will receive just under £2 million in funding between March 2015 and March 2016.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The department has established a network of 34 new Maths Hubs across England, backed by £11 million of funding. This initiative will enable every primary school in England to access locally tailored, quality support as well as leading on national projects to implement the Asian-style mastery approach to mathematics, which has achieved world-leading levels of success. Central to this is the China-England Mathematics Teacher Exchange Programme, which has so far seen 59 primary mathematics teachers from Shanghai spend three weeks working in primary schools alongside their English colleagues, planning lessons, and leading master classes and training sessions with other schools to allow local teachers to benefit directly from their expertise. The hubs are also leading a project to trial the use of Singapore-style textbooks at the core of a mastery teaching approach in selected primary schools.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>For the first time in 2014-15, post-initial teacher training subject knowledge enhancement is available to primary teachers for mathematics. This is part of a school-led test and learn project with 45 Teaching School Alliances designing and delivering this training across the country to meet local need.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>It is for school leaders to determine with their teachers what forms of professional development would be most effective in particular circumstances and to fund this from their delegated budgets. However, the government is continuing to improve the capacity of schools to take the lead in training and developing teachers, including teachers of STEM subjects in secondary schools. This includes supporting schools to lead on the creation of high-quality training opportunities for teachers through the national network of teaching schools. The department is providing funding of £7.2 million from April 2014 to support the National Science Learning Network which delivers high-quality science professional development locally through partnerships.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>On 11 March 2015 the Prime Minister announced new measures to recruit more maths and physics teachers. This includes making £24 million available to train and upskill 15,000 existing non-specialist mathematics and physics teachers over the next 5 years. This will enable every secondary school in England to up-skill at least 1 of their staff in these subjects each year. The successful Maths and Physics Chairs programme is being expanded to recruit 100 experts with PhDs to teach and support the subject knowledge development of 2,000 physics and maths teachers in the school partnerships where they work. They are especially targeted in disadvantaged areas.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>It has also been announced that the government is supporting the establishment of a new, independent professional body – the College of Teaching. This new organisation, which is being set up by teachers for teachers, will play an important part in promoting high professional standards and effective development for its members.</p><p> </p>
