I understand and agree with Donaldson’s thoughts on continuing professional development. We all want our teachers to be actively involved in such a process. However, I am also concerned that we should not mix up the idea of selecting the right people with the need to have the particular bent towards academia. I was struck by the comment that universities and the GTCS will work

“to reconceptualise and develop the traditional BEd degree”.

Can Ms Constance shed some light on what is planned for the BEd degree?
