* Primary BEd to include more arts and sciences courses.

* Deeper curriculum content knowledge.

* Broader study across the university plus a requirement to do work experience outwith schools to challenge values and attitudes.

* Classroom practice to be modelled on a medical "clinical internship" where investigating learning, teaching and pupil achievement become the prime focus.

* Course to embed more evidence-gathering to enable teachers to test their effectiveness in relation to pupil gains.
