Abstract

The All-Party Parliamentary Group for the Teaching Profession is one of the most active APPGs,
with meetings regularly attracting over 80 attendees, drawn from the Lords, the Commons and
professionals across the whole of the education sector.
The Special Interest Group on Initial Teacher Training (ITT) was established to ensure that proper
attention was given to the initial training of teachers.
Teachers are the most valuable asset of any education system. How the teaching profession is
trained and retained is of critical importance to the future of children and young people in England.
This contribution to the debate on the future of initial teacher training, written by experts from
across the sector, must be taken account of by those developing the reforms to the system.
