Promoting Quality in Teacher Education

DfE ITT criteria update

13 May 2021

Updated throughout to take account of the recent coronavirus amendments:

  • allowing the current cohort to be assessed as meeting the standards if they demonstrate they would have met them were it not for disruption relating to coronavirus (COVID-19) by the time they complete their training.
  • Allowing current cohort to have trained wholly or mainly outside England.

This was announced on GOV.UK on the 20th April subject to Parliament here: Coronavirus (COVID-19): initial teacher training (ITT) - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

The Instrument is here: The Education (Coronavirus) (School Teachers’ Qualifications, Induction, Inspection Arrangements, Etc) (Amendment) Regulations 2021 (legislation.gov.uk)
