Proposed revisions to the framework for inspecting initial teacher education

06 May 2014

ACME submitted a response to the Ofsted consultation on proposed changes to inspection arrangements and to the ITE framework and ITE inspection handbook.

The proposals include the introduction of a two-stage approach to inspection of the quality of training in ITE partnerships and amendments to the ITE framework and ITE inspection handbook.

In its letter, ACME suggested that inspectors should identify and record the extent to which the training has helped the student to become aware of opportunities for their personal, subject-specific professional development and school-based, local, regional or national professional networks.

In relation to the proposed amendments to the ITE framework and inspection handbook, ACME suggested that the section on 'overall effectiveness' of training should be extended to include trainees' access to and engagement in good subject-specific pedagogy.

ACME also suggested that the criteria on skills associated with high quality training and support could be further strengthened by making reference to skills related to subject-specific expertise.
