Delegates at this seminar considered the next steps for training and supporting the teaching workforce in Wales. It was timed to discuss progress so far following the announcement of a ‘New Deal’ for Teaching Professionals in Wales in March 2015 and the publication of Professor John Furlong’s Teaching Tomorrow’s Teachers report. It also came ahead of the introduction of a new National Curriculum for Wales and was timed to allow discussion about the impact that forthcoming changes will have on the teaching profession. Sessions focused on the delivery and content of initial teacher training, improving access to and quality of professional development for teachers and support staff - particularly around use of technology in the classroom - and developing a new generation of school leaders in Wales to address the impending retirement of a large number of current headteachers across the country.
