We need teachers to be more rigorously educated, says GSA President

Head calls for long term teacher training strategy

The return to rigour is an excellent opportunity to build a long term strategy for training teachers, according to head teacher and GSA President Alice Phillips.

Alice, who is also head of St Catherine’s, Bramley, is in favour of more rigour in the curriculum, but questions whether the UK has enough teachers with sufficient knowledge for it to fulfil its potential.

She has told the Times Educational Supplement that the training courses that have sprung up to try to prepare teachers for the curriculum changes are not enough.
