Next steps for Initial Teacher Training in England - the ITT market review, impact and implementation, curriculum design, teacher mentoring and development, quality assurance, and partnerships

Morning, Thursday, 28th April 2022


This conference focusses on initial teacher training in England, and next steps for providers as they prepare for the reaccreditation process following the ITT market review.


It follows the publication of the Government’s response to the review, with requirements for training curricula and their scope beyond core content, placements, and mentoring structures.


We are pleased to be able to include keynote contributions from the chair of the ITT Market Review Group, Ian Bauckham, CEO Tenax Schools Trust and Professor Samantha Twiselton, Member, ITT Market Review Group; and Director, Sheffield Institute of Education, Sheffield Hallam University


Stakeholders and policymakers will discuss latest thinking and issues for implementation on curriculum design, the provision of school placements, and the development and coordination of mentoring.


The conference will also be an opportunity to consider:

  • the future of ITT partnerships, including the identification of new partners
  • the development of quality assurance arrangements

the future structure of the sector
