Further information, legacy and case studies

The programme provided a response to the well-documented teacher shortages being experienced in key subject areas, but beyond that, offered recruits a unique opportunity to develop additional skills and experience to bring to their teaching.

The programme’s recruits accessed high quality Initial Teacher Education (ITE) aligned with opportunities for industrial or academic placements, subject updating and Technical and Knowledge Skills Enhancement (TKSE). The resulting cohort of new teachers and potential leaders were well equipped to work towards outstanding provision in the sector for learners on technical routes.

The below video and case studies give an insight into the experiences of participants.
