Accelerated Training for Applicants Seeking a Second-Career in Teaching
Two facts should be considered by those concerned with the teaching workforce in Israel. The first is that the profession does not attract "the best and the brightest" needed for education in the 21st century and that for many applicants it is a default option. The second is that rapid changes in the employment market force many workers to abandon one type of work for another. The challenge is to recruit them and then properly train them in both pre-service education and continuous professional development, while creating conditions to insure their retention in the system. In this context the accelerated programs have been found to make a positive contribution. In Israel alternative teacher training programs for retired army personnel are well-known as is the recommendation of the Dovrat committee (2005) to allow graduates with B.A. degrees to enter teaching before obtaining a teaching license.
