The talent website is finally closing on 31 July 2015 after 15 years serving literacy, numeracy and ESOL teachers; for the last seven years it has been supported by the National Development Centre for Research into adult literacy, language and numeracy (NRDC).

We are very pleased that the Education and Training Foundation has agreed to host many of the talent teaching resources on the Excellence Gateway http://www.excellencegateway.org.uk/ and we will be working with them to transfer materials across over the coming months. You will find these by searching the Excellence Gateway using the free text search box on the home page and entering ‘talent website’*.

In addition, the Foundation is going to make use of the talent teacher training course information on its FE Advice site https://www.feadvice.org.uk/

*Please bear with us if you don’t find what you are looking for. We will be uploading resources steadily over the coming weeks and months but there is a lot to migrate.

talent offers impartial advice on Initial Teacher Training (ITT) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for new and existing teachers and their employers, working in a range of teaching and learning contexts within the lifelong learning sector in England.
