We want to make sure all Initial Teacher Education (ITE) programmes are structured to develop the knowledge, skills, and understanding that student teachers need to meet the qualified teacher status (QTS) standards. We also want to incorporate opportunities to assess students' demonstration of these.
That's why we partner with schools, colleges, training providers, and other agencies. As well as supporting and developing classroom practice, all our partners are committed to the improvement of training programmes through a systematic cycle of review and development.
Training through partnership brings a wealth of expertise and skills to student teachers. It also provides rich opportunities for joint professional development and the exchange of ideas and practice.
