Description/Abstract

While many countries face challenges in preparing sufficient high quality mathematics teachers, the issue of the supply and quality of those who train new teachers can get overlooked. In England, the needs of new mathematics education tutors in Universities is being recognised by the Teacher Training Agency (TTA), the Government body responsible for the recruitment and training of teachers. This paper reports on the award of a grant to a group of UK professional subject associations for mathematics to produce materials and provide induction support for University tutors new to initial teacher education (ITE). One major outcome of the project is a website developed to support new (and existing) ITE tutors. Data from questionnaires to new tutors reveal that the induction support is much appreciated.
