    Routes into Teaching, Oxford

    This one day event looks at how the delivery of postgraduate initial teacher training has undergone substantial change since 2012-13. We have seen a government-led move towards a more school-centric approach in which growing numbers of schools lead on recruitment and the delivery of training and the emergence of additional specialist routes into teaching.  These sit alongside existing University-led PGCE programmes and more established direct entry routes via Teach First and in the independent sector.
