103 The Department continued to expand its programme of training for serving teachers throughout the later years of the 1960s, and also continued to offer a range of different types of courses. 104 However, the Department’s Annual Report gives no further information about these courses, though we might assume that the provision of courses in Russian reflects the importance of that language during the Cold War. For the next decade the question of teacher professional development exercised government and issues of access, reach, timing, availability, control and entitlement, all of which had been raised in earlier phases, came under intense scrutiny.

This chapter examines and compares three types of vacation course: a Board of Education sponsored summer school at Derby Teacher Training College; A Welsh Education Office vacation course at the University of Oxford; and the City of London Vacation Course (CLVC), an independent commercial venture organised by a leading educational publisher, Robert Evans. At a time when the nature of teacher professionalism was undergoing significant transformation, the vacation course model offers a new way of conceptualising the wider question of teacher status and identity and tensions between ideas of personal and professional improvement.
