A wealth of professional services and benefits
Welcome to your second edition of InTuition from the Society for Education and Training (SET). More than ever, the magazine is packed with articles that we hope you will find useful, informative and interesting. The past few months have been both hectic and exciting for the Society as we have worked with our members to introduce new professional services and benefits.
We are committed to encouraging our members to engage in research activity and are pleased to announce the availability of 10 bursaries of £500 for members successful in joining the Education and Training Foundation’s (ETF) practitioner research programme (see details opposite). At the ETF research conference in London this summer practitioners from across the sector shared the results of more than 80 applied research projects that have been carried out as part of the Foundation’s practitioner research programme. There is a special report on the projects and the conference on page 20 of this issue. The deadline for bursary applications is 5 October and, in the meantime, don’t miss the research Q&A with Sheila Kearney, ETF’s head of research, which will be taking place at the end of September on our SET forum.
We have also been developing a series of exclusive professional development events for members which will run across the country this autumn (page 5). And not forgetting trainee teachers, we are extending our reduced membership rate of £18.50 to those studying initial teacher education courses part-time. Trainees and qualified teachers may also be interested in reading about the landmark ITE report on page 4, where you can also find details of the discounted part-time offer.
Our SET online content will be further enhanced with an English skills webinar on 28 September (page 7) and further development of our online practitioner forums (page 15), which is just the first part of our autumn schedule of new online content. You can find out more about new benefits and features in our new monthly InTuition Extra e-newsletter (page 5) or, of course, by checking the SET website. I hope you’re able to find a few minutes to yourself and enjoy your new edition of InTuition. We’d love to hear your feedback on this edition and any of the issues covered at email@example.com.
