Letter: Is ILT value for money?

February 8, 2002

If Paul Clark, chief executive of the Institute for Learning and Teaching, heeded his members he would realise that many are dissatisfied with the ILT's performance (Letters, THES , February 1).

The two candidates who topped the poll for five ILT council members were critical of how the ILT is run. This was before the ILT hiked subscriptions from £75 to £85 - nearly twice intervening inflation.

Many of us in the ILT believe in the need to raise the status and quality of teaching, but are not impressed with the institute's practical and campaigning roles. Unless the ILT improves, I wonder how many people will pay a voluntary tax to practise their profession.
