Welcome to the third issue of our thirty second volume.
I used to use this space to introduce the articles in the issue one by one. But we have an introductory blue box at the start of each article so this does the job for me. Also, in the last few issues I have used the Editorial to encourage you to write for the journal. This has worked a treat, so I will try it again! Whether you are a novice or more experienced writer, we welcome articles on any topic of interest and relevance to teacher trainers, teacher educators and teacher mentors. To give you an idea of the sort of articles we publish, here are our established columns: Author’s corner, Book review, Classic articles or Golden oldies, Classroom practice, Conference and session reports, Current research, E-Matters, Feeder fields, Games for TT, Have you read…? In-service training and development, Interviews, Language matters, Literature matters, Meet a colleague, Observation and feedback, People who train people, Training round the world, Practical training session, Pre-service training, Process options, Q and A, Readings for trainees, Mentoring, Teacher selection and evaluation, The spoof page, Trainee voices, Trainer background, Trainer materials, Trainer mistakes, Trainer training, Training teachers for primary. The series listed above do not appear each time but come back as and when we have an interesting article to add to them. We also take articles that do not fall neatly under the headings above so don’t be put off if your idea doesn’t fit there! For more details on how to send draft articles in, please see page 11 of this issue. And if you have any questions at all, please do get in touch. Unlike journals who may be proud of their rejection rate, we aim to try to get as many people into print as possible! I hope you enjoy reading Volume 32 Number 3!
All good wishes
