Re­port backs teenage teacher taster plan

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

TEENAGERS should be put in charge of lessons to en­cour­age them to train as teach­ers, MPS said to­day. “Teach­ing taster classes” should be of­fered to sixth-for­m­ers and un­der­grad­u­ates to show them the ben­e­fits of a ca­reer in the pro­fes­sion, ac­cord­ing to the Com­mons Ed­u­ca­tion Se­lect Com­mit­tee. It also called for would-be teach­ers to be ob­served in the class­room be­fore they are of­fered a train­ing place to check their suit­abil­ity for the job. In a new re­port, the in­flu­en­tial com­mit­tee ex­am­ined the best ways of re­cruit­ing and retaining the best teach­ers. The re­port says that al­low­ing young peo­ple to try out teach­ing could im­prove the qual­ity of ap­pli­cants and lead to a lower drop-out rate.

WOULD SHOE BE­LIEVE IT?: A holo­gram dis­play of Dita Von Teese at the Chris­tian Louboutin ex­hi­bi­tion, which has re­cently opened to cel­e­brate 20 years of the fa­mous red soled footwear brand at the De­sign Mu­seum. Von Teese ap­pears in the form of a three-di­men­sional holo­graphic per­for­mance to il­lus­trate Louboutin’s ear­li­est de­sign in­spi­ra­tion - the show­girl. The bur­lesque per­former’s sil­hou­ette morphs from a Louboutin shoe to dance on stage be­fore she trans­forms back into a stiletto.
