ITT Market Review

ITT Market Review

On 1st December, the DfE announced their response to the Initial Teaching Training (ITT) Market Review consultation.

After a report was published in July, a consultation was opened and plans formulated from this to change the way ITT is accredited and the expectations of a Trainee teacher’s year updated.

The plans set out this month instigates a significant change in how providers of ITT are approved from September 2024. Some changes have been made to the initial report recommendations and additional funds to support some changes have been offered.

However, all providers will need to re-assess how they meet the expectations of provision. Accredited Providers have until 17th December 2021 to express interest in entering the procurement process (via the DfE eTendering portal) and bidding to retain ITT status for 2024/25. Application rounds 1 and 2 will close on 7th February and 27th June respectively.

Parties interested in learning more can attend a DfE led online webinar on 7th, 9th and 15th December 2021.

Generate Teaching Hub will be sharing information on the report and highlighting resources to local ITT providers as the plans are assessed and clarifications received. In the first instance, we recommend local ITT providers digest the report, attend information events and contact their current accredited provider to begin considering their options and preferences. NASBTT has issued a statement on the DfE’s ITT plans and are themselves a valuable point of national support to ITT providers.
