The Fourth Edition, published June 2020, of the Management Handbook for Schools-Led Initial Teacher Training (ITT) is available now.  The Handbook has principally been written to support those with responsibility for the strategic and operational management and administration of programmes of schools-led ITT.  The Handbook has been split into three distinct sections: ITT Provision and Responsibilities, Applicant Journey and Trainee Journey.  We strongly encourage providers to refer to the Handbook; colleagues new to ITT will find it particularly helpful in understanding the complex sector.

In addition to the Handbook, we are pleased to share an Operational Calendar for Schools-Led Initial Teacher Training (ITT) which will support providers in planning their operational and administrative tasks.

We express our thanks to the Administrator Support Partners (ASPs) for their contributions in updating the Handbook and devising the Operational Calendar to support providers.

Please be reminded that these resources and other NASBTT Publications are available in the NASBTT Member Hub – Key Resources – NASBTT Publications.
