REMINDERS A national network of these Centres will be announced in April 2007 and operational by September 2007. CETTs principles include developing a partnership approach in order to achieve a step change in the quality of ITT and CPD organisations working together to develop a CETT proposal will need to show how they will significantly improve and develop practice in ITT and CPD within the geographical area or subject area/discipline they nominate. The impact should not merely be within, but also beyond the constituent organisations of the CETT. (DfES 2006)
REMINDERS The 6 CETT criteria 1.Enhance the quality of training by bringing together providers and trainees from different contexts such as HE, FE, adult and community education, work-based learning and the voluntary sector. 2.Improve the support for trainees in the workplace so that they are better able to develop skills related to teaching their specialist subject/occupational area. 3.Embed commitment to principles of diversity and equality in everything they do and in particular by widening access to training for under-represented groups and modelling inclusive practice in teaching and learning. 4.Increase the breadth and depth of trainee teachers experience by providing opportunities for observing, teaching or assessing different types of learners on different qualifications in more than one ITT provider. 5.Contribute to the development of innovative practice through well-targeted research and dissemination activities. 6.Provide high quality resources, including on-line materials, for the development of trainees in the workplace that are shared with other providers on both a regional and a national basis.
