Professor Sir Bob Burgess discusses the opportunities for the Higher Education sector in teacher training.

In the wake of the Government’s strategy paper Training Our Next Generation of Outstanding Teachers, Professor Sir Bob Burgess has highlighted what he describes as the missed opportunity to create a progression route into teaching via a Masters degree in Teaching and Learning.

Writing in the Guardian, the Vice-Chancellor discusses the future for such degrees without Government funding, as well as other benefits that Higher Education institutions could bring to teacher training reforms.

Professor Sir Bob Burgess is Chair of the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) and of the joint Universities UK/GuildHE Teacher Education Advisory Group.  Professor Burgess’ experience also comes from a substantial career in educational research with several publications on the subject to his name.
