This Circular, published in May 1998, set out the Secretary of State's criteria which all courses of initial teacher training were required to meet.

It is presented here as an image-only pdf file: I hope to produce a text version in due course.

See also: Circular 10/97, issued in July 1997, which Circular 4/98 replaced.

Note: Circular 4/98 was reissued in June 2001 with an addendum, and it is that version which is presented here. The original Circular 4/98 begins at page 3 of the pdf file. Page 1 is the 2001 cover page; page 2 is the addendum.
