Regulations came into force on the 10 March 2017 setting out further detail of EWC’s new role.
The Education Workforce Council (Accreditation of Initial Teacher Training) (Additional Functions) Order 2017 allows the EWC to charge a fee to partnerships to assess its programme. The fees charged by the EWC may not exceed the cost of providing the service.
Partnerships submitting programmes of ITE which run from September 2019 have not been charged a fee as costs for the initial round of accreditations have been met by the Welsh Government, through grant funding to the EWC.
EWC consulted on the proposed fees from 14 May to 6 July 2018. Full details of the consultation process and responses received can be found in the consultation report .
