Please see the summary and link below for details of updated guidance and requirements relating to ITE. Members will be pleased to note in particular that student teachers are confirmed as having critical worker status within schools. ITT tutors, however, will not be considered critical workers and providers may want to consider flexibilities in their programmes in the early part of next year to accommodate schools who wish to minimise ‘external’ visitors to their premises.
Information for providers about managing initial teacher training courses impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19).
Updated the guidance to include information on compliance with the ITT criteria (2020 to 2021), ITT trainee consumer protection advice, 120 days in schools, support for ITT 2020 and critical workers.
