Standing Committee for the Education and Training of Teachers
SCETT is the one of the key organisations in relation to the education of teachers in the UK. It brings together teacher unions and associations, providers, practitioners and other professionals who share our interests.
One of the central aims of SCETT is to provide opportunities for debate and the interrogation of ideas and proposals related to the education of teachers.
Thanks to our wide membership and open door, contrasting views abound. The result is lively debate backed up by the in-depth knowledge and experience of those participating.
SCETT is proud to support and be associated with the Battle of Ideas - it is a natural partnership for us.
Ralph Surman, Chair, SCETT
"The rules of the game at The Battle of Ideas makes beating about the bush impossible. When you are given 5 minutes to make your point, you either say something essential, or you reveal that you have nothing really to say. This eliminates 'the unbearable lightness' of speculation that haunts public debate."
