A report from the ITT market review expert group.

Applies to England



The Department for Education appointed an expert group to undertake a review of the initial teacher training (ITT) market for courses that lead to qualified teacher status (QTS). The aim of the review is to enable the provision of consistently high quality training, in line with the ITT core content framework (CCF), in an effective and efficient market.

DfE sought views on the recommendations made in the report through a public consultation and published the government’s response to the ITT market review on 1 December 2021.
