Fast-track training

20th July 2001 at 01:00
The number of applicants offered places on the fast-track teacher scheme has risen to 135. Schools minister Stephen Timms provided the figure in reply to a question from Liberal Democrat education spokesman Phil Willis. He had asked for a breakdown of the types of schools in which fast-track teachers would be employed but Mr Timms replied: "All categories of school will be encouraged to identify how they could best use a fast-track teacher." He added that successful candidates would begin initial teacher training this autumn and take up posts in schools in September 2002.
