Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education (ACME)

Initial teacher education routes

14 October 2016

The Department for Education launched a consultation on Apprenticeship Standards in September 2016. One of these standards is for teaching. ACME responded to the consultation and the letter is available here.

As set out in ACME's 2015 report, Beginning teaching: best in class?, whatever route is taken in mathematics ITE, there are a number of elements that should be consistent across every ITE programme. All routes into teaching of mathematics must emphasise the importance of subject-specific education and the development of critical evaluation skills.
