What can we do to ensure the next generation of teachers entering the profession are well equipped to
meet the many challenges awaiting them in a rapidly changing school scene? The following contributions
show how. They are drawn from the practice of the Graduate Teacher Programme (GTP), Canterbury Christ
Church University’s Employment Based Initial Teacher Training (EBITT). At Canterbury Kerry Jordan-Daus,
Director of the Graduate Teacher Programme, 2007-2011, leads a large team of Higher Education (HEI) tutors
and partnership schools. The provision includes a range of EBITT pathways and was graded “outstanding”
by Ofsted in May 2011 and ranked 2nd in The Good Teacher Training Guide 2011 (Smithers and Robinson).
