Tes Institute gains re-accreditation for ITT

We’re delighted to be providing Initial Teacher Training (ITT) programmes for September 2024 and beyond.
11 Nov 22

It’s no secret that in recent months Initial Teacher Training (ITT) providers across the country have gone through a rigorous re-accreditation process as part of the ITT Market review. The journey has been followed closely in Tes Magazinewhere is was reported in May that almost two thirds of providers were not accredited in the first round of the process.

We’re proud to confirm we’ve passed the Department for Education's second-stage re-accreditation phase and are an approved ITT provider for September 2024 and beyond. This achievement is recognition of the tireless work of all the teams working on our ITT routes. The re-accreditation allows us to continue training, inspiring and developing trainee teachers and working with our partner schools to help put confident, qualified teachers into classrooms.  

“We are delighted to be re-accredited to enable us to continue to deliver ITT programmes in collaboration with our school partnerships from 2024. We are already adapting our ambitious curriculum to align with the expectations, and have exciting plans for mentor development to meet the quality requirements. We look forward to working collaboratively with Teaching School Hubs and SCITTs in our region, to support the development of ITT nationally.” 
Jane Coleman, Programme Director for Schools Direct and Postgraduate Teaching Apprenticeship
