      Jackson, Phil; Serf, Jeffrey M. (Didcot, Oxford: Symposium Journals, 2008)
      September 2007 saw the introduction of the new ‘Q’ standards for the award of Qualified Teacher Status. Drawing on a meeting of 140 primary and secondary school ITT tutors, this article sets out to record and discuss the teachers’ initial reactions to these new standards a few weeks before their introduction. The article shows classroom teachers have significant concerns about a significant minority of the standards and this indicates that HEIs and other ITT providers now have a challenging management of change agenda.
