'Different but equal'


Following an interesting roundtable discussion led by three UK universities at the recent BECERA conference, Professor Denise Hevey from The University of Northampton has put together a statement in response to the EY Teacher proposal in More Great Childcare.

In this statement entitled 'Different but Equal', Professor Hevey has focused on the impression the proposal creates that the new Early Years Teachers without QTS are still second class citizens compared with teachers with QTS.

This was written in a way that recognizes the strengths of both professional routes and hence enables us in HE to unite on a way forward rather than to take a divisive and hence weakened stance.
