PRICE and MASON, 1991. Articled teachers of technology: an evaluation of the first year of the North-West consortium programme. DATER 1991 Conference, Loughborough: Loughborough University
In 1990 the North-West Consortium in the Articled Teacher Scheme admitted its first cohort of students. The Wigan LEA elected to focus its attention on Technology in collaboration with the University of Manchester. The paper evaluates the recruitment, course planning, delivery and student attitude changes during the first year of this two-year course. The course has presented some interesting problems of sequencing of activities, cost-effective groupings and logistics of matching the programme of the two HE institutions, two phases and four secondary shortage subjects involved.
The paper concentrates on the subject area of Technology.
