Extra help for mature trainees;Letter
As you reported on May 14 the Teacher Training Agency has set up a scheme to help just such potential teachers train while they work: the graduate teacher programme. The TTA has contracted TimePlan to find up to 600 mature maths and science graduates and match them to vacancies. They will then follow a programme - normally over a school year - leading to qualified teacher status. Graduates on the pro-gramme pay no course fees and are paid at least pound;11,750 while they train.
