Surrey did not withdraw

24th March 1995 at 00:00
The front-page report on School Centred Initial Teacher Training was incorrect in its report that the University of Surrey had "withdrawn" from its involvement in the city technology college Smallpeice SCITT technology programme.

The Smallpeice technology programme is validated by the Roehampton Institute in London. The first cohort of Smallpeice technology students only received a University of Surrey postgraduate certificate in education under the Roehampton Institute's instrument of accreditation, pending a decision to award its own Roehampton Institute PGCE from September 1994.

Quality assurance for the Smallpeice SCITT PGCE award has always been the responsibility of the institute.
