New requirement for adult education teachers to prove skills
Adult education professionals will now have to demonstrate their literacy, numeracy and information communication technology (ICT) skills before they can take up a post, according to new guidelines.

The measures have been developed by the Institute for Learning with support from the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills, Lifelong Learning UK and Standards Verification UK in response to a new requirement that a teacher's personal skills must be proved before they can achieve a professional qualification in adult education.

Suitable methods of qualification and assessment are now being looked at before the scheme is launched in September of this year.

Teachers will not be required to demonstrate their ICT skills until a later date, although this area is becoming increasingly important in schools and adult learning centres.

Technology provides a valuable 'teaching resource' in the classroom, Roy Barker, director of the British Educational Suppliers Association, recently remarked.
