Join campaign to keep BEd

14th April 2000 at 01:00
ALONGSIDE many mature students at the University of North London, I decided to switch direction mid-career and move into teaching.

I felt the BEd would give me a deeper understanding of education theory and practice.

Two years into my training the Government is now effectively telling me that the BEd course is less well regarded. This stance is in total opposition to the vews of heads and teachers, who recognise the worth of longer training.

At UNL we are determined to fight to keep the BEd going. Other BEd students who want to join our campaign should write to me at the address below.

We demand that the Government makes equitable payments to all student teachers.
