Advisory group set up to support ITT review

30/07/2014 Kelly
An advisory group has been established to support the review of the quality and effectiveness of initial teacher training (ITT) courses.

In May, former education secretary Michael Gove appointed Sir Andrew Carter, headteacher of South Farnham School, to chair the independent review.

It will seek the views of those involved to define effective ITT practice, assess the effectiveness of current ITT delivery, recommend improvements and identify ways to boost choice within the system.

Members appointed by Sir Andrew include Sir Daniel Moynihan, chief executive officer of the Harris Federation; Daisy Christodoulou, research and development manager at ARK; and Professor Samantha Twiselton, director of the Sheffield Institute for Education at Sheffield Hallam University.

They are tasked with providing expertise and support in developing the review's conclusions and recommendations.

The review is expected to report to the secretary of state for education by the end of 2014.
