The Chartered College of Teaching’s review of the DfE’s recently published ITT Market Review concludes the timing of and rationale for this review are premature. The Early Career Framework (ECF) needs to be fully embedded. The experience of the Core Curriculum Framework (CCF) needs to be fully embedded. Where gaps emerge or where nuance needs to inform the ITT curriculum and the ECF curriculum, time to reflect will be helpful. A review of the number of ITT providers could be reviewed to ensure local partnerships, thereby simplifying the application process. Mass re-accreditation will be costly and could result in the loss of some high-quality providers from the system. A rushed consultation process is unwise and unhelpful and risks significant disruption to a sector that is currently meeting the requirements of trainees, school partnerships and national priorities admirably.
