The future of initial teacher education accreditation
From September 2019, all initial teacher education (ITE) programmes in Wales will need to be accredited by the EWC. This new function will be carried out by the EWC’s ITE accreditation board.
Teaching Tomorrow’s teachers recommended the development of a very different approach for accrediting programmes of ITE in Wales and the Welsh Government’s document Criteria for the accreditation of initial teacher education programmes in Wales recognises the value and the difference a truly collaborative ITE system can make when universities and schools work in genuine partnership.
The process formally opened in March 2017.
