This online conference will look at priorities for initial teacher training in England following the ITT market review.

It will be an opportunity for stakeholders and policymakers to discuss the outcome of the provider accreditation process, along with the delivery of new quality standards for training from September 2024 - as well as priorities for the sector under new government leadership.

Delegates will assess:
• the future of the ITT market and implications for sector partners, including the impact of the review for school-based programmes and in higher education
• the impact of the accreditation process on training options, and priorities for taking forward partnerships between providers.

There will be discussion on priorities for delivering evidence-based training, the development and co-ordination of mentoring, and latest thinking on ITT curriculum design that reflects the Government’s Core Content Framework.

Further sessions focus on what is needed to deliver innovative approaches to training, delivering high standards, as well as the policy priorities for boosting recruitment and ensuring sufficient opportunities to train.

Overall, areas for discussion will include:
• provider accreditation: key issues for providers following the completion of the ITT market review and the recent accreditation process
• providers: training programmes in SCITT and higher education institutions - the role of teaching school hubs - developing quality assurance
• supporting learners: mentoring and teacher development - delivering placements - supporting newly-qualified teachers
• curriculum: integrating core content and evidence-based training - curriculum design and delivery
• quality: taking forward new programme standards - learning from best practice
• teacher recruitment and retention: boosting sector growth - opportunities for professional development - tackling regional disparities.

Keynote sessions will be with Ian Bauckham, CEO, Tenax Schools Trust; and Chair, ITT Market Review Group; Emma Hollis, Executive Director, NASBTT; James Noble-Rogers, Executive Director, UCET; and Professor Samantha Twiselton, Director of Sheffield Institute of Education, Sheffield Hallam University; and Member, ITT Market Review Group.
