The Society for Education and Training has appointed eight new members to the Trainee Teacher Advisory Group (TTAG) following a recruitment drive which ran in late 2021.
SET is steered by three groups; the SET Management Board, the Practitioner Advisory Group and TTAG which is made up of members who are either studying their Initial Teacher Education (ITE) or are in their first-year post-qualification.
The group meets online three times a year to provide their views to ensure the membership team is tapping into feedback from the sector to inform upcoming plans and determine future content for SET’s student member base and those who have recently achieved their ITE.
Jane Galbraith, Head of Membership for SET, said: “The feedback gained from the group is invaluable and supports SET in being a member-led organisation. The new recruits will attend their first meeting in early February, and, alongside the existing group members will no doubt provide us with some fantastic insight and feedback on our upcoming projects. We are really looking forward to working with them more over the coming months.”
If you would like your voice to help determine the direction of SET, please email email@example.com to register your interest and be the first to know when the next recruitment window opens later this year.
