School training days

Recommended Posts

Maybe it's just as important that our children are taught by a qualified teacher for 100% of the school timetable, instead of people who are not qualified teachers teaching them for at least half a day a week. :(

 

Is it? Why, do only qualified teachers have anything to offer?

Shouldnt teachers be fully qualified BEFORE being given the job ?

 

You obviously have no idea what a professional job is. Look up what CPD means and then come back.

 

Edit: you too Bargepole23.

It looks like someone is worried that he'll lose his title as village idiot.

 

Do you think that only teachers have training and that everyone else is fully knowledgeable of everything to do with their job from day one?

 

Actually you probably do.

Why me? Maybe try reading what I said.

 

I'm fully aware what CPD is, I'm a Chartered Electrical Engineer. I'm also fully aware of the need for ongoing training, which is why I pulled up our friend from Penistone on his comments.

I think it's ok for people who are not qualified teachers to come and give a talk about their area of expertise as a guest in a school. I don't want my child to be taught regularly for one half a day a week, timetabled, by someone who is not a qualified teacher. Teachers have a teaching qualification for a reason.

You may be surprised to know that many of us have done very well in life after being taught by wonderful teachers that did not have a specialist teaching qualification.

 

Passing a teaching qualification does not make you a good teacher.

These days it does tend do. Unfortunately, though, not many stay in the profession for long.

 

I prefer my children to be taught by a qualified teacher rather than an unknown on the cheap. Gaining a teaching qualification these days requires a great deal of dedication, a prime requisite of the job.

I don't know if this is universal, but on the staff list at my daughter's school (available on the website) it lists where their qualification is from and what it is. Not vital information, but I liked the transparency.
