|Event Date/Time: Jun 29, 2011||End Date/Time: Jun 29, 2011|
PTLLS, CTLLS and DTLLS and the Subject Specific qualifications (Literacy and Numeracy) are currently under review to ensure they continue to deliver the teaching and training skills for the future. The proposals are significant especially at the lower levels and bringing different options into the framework. It is expected that the final proposals for the qualification review will have been announced prior to the conference and that some of the new qualifications/units of assessment may be available from Awarding Organisations by Sept 2011. The event has a special session to focus closely on the content, credit value and implications of these changes provided by a speaker closely involved with the review.
The conference will be chaired by Dennis Hayes, Professor of Education at the University of Derby and Hon. Secretary of the Standing Committee for the Education and Training of Teachers. He was made a National Teaching Fellow in 2010.
