Submitting a Programme
Any partnership wishing to submit a programme for accreditation must refer to the following documents:
- Welsh Government Criteria for the accreditation of Initial Teacher Education (ITE) programmes in Wales
- Submitting a programme of ITE to the EWC for accreditation
Statement of intent form
- The proforma that must be used to submit a programme
Partnerships must ensure any new programmes of ITE are submitted to us at least 18 months prior to the anticipated start date of the programme (eg. programmes starting in September 2021 must be submitted to us by March 2020), and must fill out the electronic proforma.
Where a partnership wishes to make significant changes to an accredited programme it must notify us in writing before making these changes. This must be done using the proforma: Proforma: major change to a programme of ITE.
Further guidance about major changes is available here .
We consulted on accreditation fees from 14 May to 6 July 2018. Full details of the consultation process and responses can be found in the consultation report .
Any Partnership submitting a programme for accreditation, or that has an accredited programme which requires a review or monitoring visit must pay the appropriate fee to us.
