What is a ‘teacher’? Are those with a QTS the only people who can help children learn?
Have all the people you have learned from had QTS? Didn’t think so. Which brings me to my motivation for this blog post. I have been hugely disappointed by the level of debate from teachers, about the place of non-QTS ‘teachers’ in schools. It would be great if this was as simple as the binary policy issue that the politicians want it to be – but it ain’t.
