Carter review of Initial Teacher Training (ITT)

As you may be aware there was a review of ITT carried out by Sir Andrew Carter in January 2015.

The purpose of the review included the following; define effective ITT, assess the current system and make recommendations. Some of the recommendations include commissioning a sector body to develop a framework of core content for ITT which includes subject knowledge development, using evidence based teaching methods and having wider ITT partnerships. Following the Carter Review there was a Working Party to look at ITT at which Patrick Derham, Headmaster of Westminster School, represented our sector and the findings have been published.

The government responded with a letter and three practical proposal documents. For your interest, they can be found here.
