The ITT allocation methodology sets out the characteristics and criteria that the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) have considered in the allocation of places for:

  • School Direct (salaried)
  • School Direct (tuition fee)
  • provider-led courses

This is for the academic year 2017 to 2018.
