Delayed Start to the MTL Programme
The Secretary of State announced on 6 April 2009 in a speech to the ATL annual conference that we should start the MTL programme from early in 2010 in all regions, rather than in September 2009. The decision was informed by concerns expressed by social partners, HEIs and schools.
In practice this means that NQTs taking up post in eligible schools from September 2009 will retain their eligibility, but will not start registering for the programme until early in 2010, and will not be expected to undertake any MTL-related activity until the summer term.
This does not change the fundamental design principles already agreed by Ministers or eligibility for MTL, but gives a little more time for us to ensure that we develop a programme that is right from the start.
