Title:
A critical approach to global citizenship in initial teacher training in the UK

Abstract:
This paper compares the evidence and robustness of a critical approach to global citizenship in the English Initial Teacher Training (ITT) sector of school-based training with that of Higher Education-based training. In recent years there has been a shift in market from mainly Higher Education provision to equal allocation of provision between school-based and Higher Education-based providers. It is core to the arguments in this paper that the impact to ITT provided via a Higher Education Institution (HEI) is likely, by virtue of their global recruitment of students, to take a critical approach to global citizenship to ensure that their international reputations are not only maintained, but enhanced. It is also likely that this will reflect in the content of the university-based courses. Additional to this is that the HEI ITT awards are made at Masters level, which school-based training is unable to offer. The paper examines the contrasts between the local paradigm for school-based training and the national and international paradigm of the HEI route. The comparison will further identify underlying issues of the pathways, which may impact on preconceptions of students entering Higher Education in particular and as such assist in informing policy approaches to developing a critical approach to global citizenship both by HEIs and of students.
