Five taster courses

23rd January 1998 at 00:00
Adults thinking of starting a new career in teaching can attend taster courses in five shortage subjects at the London Institute of Education, as part of the Pounds 10 million recruitment campaign launched by the Government last year.

The courses, on three days between late April and mid-May, are being offered in physics and broad science, mathematics, modern foreign languages, RE, and design and technology.

Each course starts with an initial session at the institute on topics such as the national curriculum and current teaching practice, followed by a full day of observation in a school and then a final session for participants to analyse and reflect on their experience. Twenty out of the 25 adults who took taster courses at the institute last October now plan to enter teaching.
