Institute given top marks for training
Roehampton's training and the work done in its partner schools, were judged "very good" in maths, English and assessment. Quality assurance procedures were judged "good".
OFSTED is inspecting the whole of primary teacher training and giving the results to the new Teacher Training Agency, which distributes government funds. The TTA has to take quality of courses into account.
OFSTED has already inspected secondary training and, again, gave Roehampton a "very good". The team of HM inspectors who visited the institute commented in particular on the skill of its students in the teaching of reading.
