New programme gives ex-army personnel easy route into teaching
London - Arabstoday

New programme gives ex-army personnel easy route into teaching Ex-soldiers will be able to take a two-year fast track to jobs as teachers under a new government scheme starting in 2014. Former members of the army, air force or navy who do not have a degree but have worked as instructors or mentors will be able to sign up to the school-based scheme, said the Department for Education.
They will spend four days a week in the classroom and one at university, resulting in a degree and qualified teacher status.
Those who do have a degree will get access to bursaries and bespoke teacher training under the Troops to Teachers programme.
Becoming a teacher usually involves competing a degree followed by a year-long course to attain qualified teacher status.
Education minister David Laws said: \"Many members of our inspiring armed forces possess the skills and expertise relevant and transferable to the classroom -- leadership, discipline, motivation and teamwork. Every child can benefit from having these values instilled in them.\"
But a headteachers\' association raised concerns over the promotion of a \"military ethos\" in schools.
Brian Lightman, general secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders, said: \"There is no doubt that some ex-military personnel have the potential to make excellent teachers, but they need the right preparation and support. From what we\'ve seen so far, this programme lacks both.
\"For those without a degree, one day a week at university over a two-year course is not enough...
\"The government talks about creating a military ethos in schools. Ex-service personnel can bring lots of relevant experience to the classroom, but a military ethos belongs in the military. Schools need a learning ethos.\"
In December the government announced £1.9 million plans to send ex-soldiers into schools to improve discipline and raise results among troubled pupils.
