ILT recruiting tactics queried

August 25, 2000

Your brief item, "Health workers offered ILT membership" (For the record, THES, August 18), was misleading in omitting to say that "registered nurses, midwives and health visitors who qualified with the UK Central Council can apply for immediate membership of the ILT" also need a UKCC- recorded teaching qualification. Nurse/midwife teachers are experienced practitioners who have taken a teacher preparation course and are therefore already accredited teachers. The ILT process recognises this accreditation as making them eligible for immediate membership.
