Talk to us about these tests

30th March 2001 at 01:00
TI-IF concerns about the trainee- teacher tests raised in your article are consistent with the responses we have had from teacher-training providers, whom we have inter- viewed as part of a study of the impact of these tests.

We would be pleased to hear from other training providers, stu- dents and headteachers about their experiences. We are particularly intrested in the social justice implications of the tests and of the likely effect on teacher supply. We can be contacted by e-mail,, or at the address below.
