Final Report of the Quality Initial Teacher Education Review

The Quality Initial Teacher Education Review (the Review), launched in April 2021, has now concluded. The final report, Next Steps: Report of the Quality Initial Teacher Education Review, is now available.

The Review looked at:

  • attracting and selecting high-quality candidates into the teaching profession
  • preparing initial teacher education (ITE) students to be effective teachers.

The Expert Panel that conducted the Review undertook extensive consultation with education stakeholders through meetings, surveys, focus groups, webinars, a workshop and a written submission process.

The final report provides a wide-ranging examination of the issues facing ITE and makes recommendations across three key areas:

  • Attracting high-quality, diverse candidates into initial teacher education
  • Ensuring their preparation is evidence-based and practical
  • Supporting early years teachers.
