The Quality Initial Teacher Education Review (the Review), launched in April 2021, has now concluded. This is the final report of the review.

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:

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