Details

The initial teacher training (ITT) core content framework defines in detail the minimum entitlement of all trainee teachers. Drawing on the best available evidence, it sets out the content that ITT providers and their partnerships must draw upon when designing and delivering their ITT programmes.

The ITT core content framework aligns with the Early Career Framework to establish an entitlement to a 3 or more year structured package of support for all new teachers at the start of their careers.

Also on this page is a summary of 2 projects relating to behaviour management, reframed to support providers of initial teacher training. These projects were Initial teacher training: government response to Carter review and Behaviour in schools.

This version of the ITT core content framework replaces ‘A framework of core content for initial teacher training’, published as part of the Initial teacher training: government response to Carter review. The Carter review report is also available.
