ITT Recommendation 10 (ITT Strategic Role)

Recommendation 10 of the ITT Market Review set out that: “Teaching School Hubs (TSHs) should partner with an accredited provider to play a role in the delivery of ITT (unless they are operating at accredited provider level). DfE should place a requirement on teaching school hubs to support local ITT delivery in specific strategic ways as required, for example through building school capacity for ITT by building an active mentor network in the local area, providing specific support for schools serving disadvantaged communities to enable them to engage with ITT, or modelling high quality intensive practice placements for other schools undertaking this aspect of ITT for the first time.” ITT Market Review report, July 2021.

Since September 2023, all TSHs have been delivering a new ITT strategic role to support local ITT delivery across their TSH area. For 2023/24 this has been primarily focused on building an understanding of school engagement in ITT in their area and increasing school engagement in ITT, both for school placements and intensive training and practice. For 2024/25, Teaching School Hubs will be building on this to identify shortage areas within hub region/s and target school involvement in these areas, ultimately supporting the availability of school placements where they are needed.
