This week, Dr Steven Puttick, Head of Programmes (Secondary, FE, Research Education) and Wayne Dyble, International Manager, of Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) have been busy in India visiting partners, presenting research, and launching an exciting new opportunity for Indian graduates to train to teach at BGU. High achieving Indian graduates in Mathematics and Science will be offered a limited number of places on BGU’s Secondary PGCE course. Following successful completion of the PGCE course, these graduates will be supported by a partner Academy chain to gain employment as Maths and Science teachers in the UK. This fantastic opportunity presents the ‘brightest and best’ Indian graduates with the chance not only of studying at an historic UK teacher training institution but also of securing employment following the course. For further details of this opportunity, and to register your interest please contact Wayne Dyble. As part of the trip, Dr Steven Puttick was also invited to present his research at Lady Irwin College’s International Conference on Learning. The conference brought together a large number of international scholars and was opened by Mr. Vineet Joshi, Director General of the National Testing Agency. In his presentation Dr Puttick discussed his research on policy discourses and current philosophical tensions within the English Inspectorate Ofsted.
