Many exciting changes are on the horizon
It has been a busy summer at the Society as, in addition to planning new membership events and content, we’ve been working hard to revamp your professional journal InTuition in time for its relaunch in December.
We have been surveying and consulting members, including those on our Practitioner Advisory Group, on developing a more engaging and accessible design and on improvements to the content.
From feedback we know that you value the informative and easily digested research content and so we are proposing to expand the research section from the next issue. We are also planning to introduce more news about, and written by, members and practitioners; dedicated sections on maths, English and learning technologies; an overseas element and much more.
We are continuing our consultation this autumn and we welcome your thoughts on InTuition. If you would like to feed in your views, please e-mail email@example.com For more details of the redesign, please turn to page 8.
You also might already have heard that we have introduced a new, enriched Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills (QTLS), making this professional status even more useful and valuable to members. Registrations for the new QTLS close on 31 October. Read about the improvements on page 4.
We have continued this summer to make improvements to the SET website to help you record CPD and your self-assessment, and you can now book for SET network events using the Education and Training Foundation’s improved online booking system. Look out also for the forthcoming SET webinars on SEND, please see details on page 7.
As the professional body for teachers and trainers, as you know we are guided by you, our members, in everything we do. Communications and feedback, whether on specific matters like the redesign of InTuition or improvements in QTLS, or on more general issues around membership and professionalism, are the lifeblood of our organisation. To this end, I would urge you to complete our annual members’ survey. The survey is open until 11 October. To complete it, go to goo.gl/Bp0l7m
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this issue of InTuition - and look forward to welcoming you to our new-look journal in December.
