This timely conference focused on next steps for the teaching workforce in Wales ahead of the release of the new curriculum in April 2019.
Delegates discussed whether the new approach provides professionals in schools with sufficient support to prepare for the new curriculum. They also looked at the initial impact of the new professional standards for teachers and leaders - particularly on the way teachers are using new freedoms to tailor classes to the needs of their pupils.
As the seminar took place with the self-evaluation framework being developed and the Welsh Government considering an independent review of Estyn’s role, the seminar assessed what these changes mean for teachers, pupils and the implementation of the new curriculum.
Delegates also looked at the recommendations from the autumn review of teacher’s pay and conditions, and the Workforce Development Plan and the Teacher Recruitment and Retention Advisory Board report.
Further discussion focused on recruitment, workloads, teacher mental health and well-being, and Welsh language provision, as well as ensuring the long-term supply of teachers for Wales.
