- ASE issues response to Government's education white paper
In this response we welcome aspects of the Government's proposals, including greater support for teachers during their early careers, more professional freedom and recognition of the importance of high quality professional development. However we have raised concerns that there is a lack of evidence to support the proposed mechanisms for achieving these ambitions. We outline the need to provide a broad and balanced curriculum within a local context. We argue that Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) should be retained and a further consideration of ITT provision is required. Our response includes 5 recommendations to Government.
