We are pleased to share the ITT Criteria Compliance Audit for 2024-25 for accredited providers delivering one or more of the three ITT core routes “(undergraduate fee-funded, postgraduate fee-funded, and postgraduate employment based)” from 1st June 2024.

The ITT criteria includes “mandatory guidance and accompanying advice from the Department for Education (DfE)”:

“… accredited initial teacher training (ITT) providers must have regard to the mandatory guidance when carrying out their duties relating to ITT.”

“Accredited ITT providers must ensure that they meet these criteria to remain compliant. Accredited ITT providers who do not comply with these criteria may be subject to withdrawal of accreditation.”

When completing this audit, close reference must be made to the Initial teacher training (ITT): criteria and supporting advice.

C2.2 Intensive Training and Practice and C2.5 Mentoring are new criteria for the 2024/25 ITT criteria.  There have also been substantial amendments to C3.2 Partnerships and Structures and C3.4 Quality Assurance.

In developing the key questions, NASBTT has tried to tread a line which, on the one hand, ensures that detailed questions for consideration are posed (closely linked to the DfE supporting advice and exemplification) and, on the other hand, seeks to streamline the audit process – avoiding repetition as much as possible.

In a further effort to streamline the auditing process, NASBTT suggests that you adopt a simple referencing system which directs end users to key documents (via either a coding system or hyperlinking).

Providers anticipating Ofsted in the 2023-24 should refer to the ITT Criteria Compliance Audit for 2023-24:
