This blog post briefly explores some initial findings from a study on the experiences of academics working partly or fully in initial teacher education (ITE) in the UK, and particularly their responses to the current ITE accreditation. At the time of writing, our questionnaire has been running for two weeks and has attracted 120 responses to Likert scale statements covering topics including workload, impact of Covid-19, Ofsted, ITE accreditation, and future career plans, plus free-text responses on these topics. While this questionnaire is open until September 2022, we felt that it was important to share what we have discovered so far, while accreditation is still very much a ‘live issue’ for the sector.
