Welcome to the first issue of our thirty second volume.
Instead of introducing the articles in the issue one by one, as I often do, I would like to encourage you to write for the journal. I did this in the last issue and we had a great response, so I will do 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 who our readers are and how to send draft articles in, please see page
10 of this issue. And if you have any questions at all, please do get in touch. Our aim is to
try to get as many people into print as possible!
This issue is available, as usual, as a print edition and as a digital edition . You can subscribe online here. Also online is a free selection of back articles and some extras in the ‘TTTJ Plus’ section!
I hope you enjoy reading Volume 32 Number 1!
All good wishes
