    I’ve completed my PhD thesis on ‘the professional situation of LLS teacher educators’ which has included a major survey of LLS teacher educators in England, an ongoing literature review of LLS teacher education, a project supporting teacher educators, and a website / online resource for teacher educators.

    Due to recent staffing issues at UWE work on proposed project based on 10-year linear sample of PGCE pre-service students has been put on hold. Hoping to do something later in the year possibly focussing on “the ones who got away” – those who either didn’t find a job in PCET or who left within a year or two of employment in the sector.

    TELL MEETING - SHEFFIELD - DECEMBER 20TH 2016
    Sheffield TELL network meeting - thanks to Sheffield Hallam University's Institute of Education (in particular Dave Darwent) for hosting
    In our local / national news section we discussed the effects of the growth of trainees who were undertaking a PCET ITE programme but intending to teach in a school, and the need to recruit and train many more teachers of Maths, English and IT. Providing the best quality support during their training, and at the start of their career, and working more closely with college management to establish and maintain that support was felt to be essential. It was also agreed that developing that support was not getting any easier in our current environment. It was felt this could potentially be the theme for a future TELL research project.
    The research showcase featured:
    Jim Crawley (Bath Spa University) Post Compulsory Teacher Educators - Connecting Professionals
    Key themes from the new book written by TELL members

    Bronwen Maxwell (Sheffield Hallam University) ‘Re-examining the ‘architecture’ for teacher mentoring in the further education and skills sector in England’
    This presentation drew on the findings of a national mixed methods study of mentoring in the FE and Skills sector to explore empirically whether the principles of an architecture for mentoring proposed by Cunningham (2007) support successful mentoring and if so, whether they are sufficient to ensure high quality mentoring. It also explored the extent to which a supportive organisational architecture for mentoring is currently in place within the sector, and any other barriers to successful mentoring.
