Registry's web impostor

14th January 2005 at 00:00
The Graduate Teacher Training Registry suffered a setback this week after it emerged that a fake but convincing-looking website using its title had been attracting teachers.

found "recommended" links to organisations offering to register them as yoga teachers, promising "teaching secrets" from a teacher in Texas, as well as connections to a range of valid government education websites.

A spokeswoman for the GTTR said it had been alerted to the alternative website this week and was now "taking appropriate action".
