Guidance: Initial teacher training (ITT) accredited providers criteria

​The DfE has published statutory guidance that organisations must meet to provide initial teacher training (ITT).

This guidance is for

  • accredited ITT providers and their partner schools,
  • organisations seeking ITT accreditation
  • and Ofsted

The document contains statutory guidance and accompanying advice from the DfE. This means that accredited ITT providers must have regard to the statutory guidance when carrying out their duties relating to ITT.

The criteria, which are statutory, are highlighted in grey boxes under the relevant sections. In order to remain compliant, accredited ITT providers must ensure they meet these criteria. If they do not comply, providers may be subject to withdrawal of accreditation.
