Primary follow-up survey of the training of trainee teachers to teach number and reading

The primary follow-up survey involved the inspection of all 72 providers of primary initial teacher training (ITT) in England; it therefore included both partnerships between higher education institutions and schools and school-centred initial teacher training schemes. It began as a survey of only 18 providers in the 1996/97 academic year, but was extended to become an inspection of the full primary ITT system which was completed at the end of the 1997/98 academic year.

Subject specialist courses in primary initial teacher training

Between September 1998 and July 2000,Ofsted inspected one specialist subject course in all but one of the 76 primary ITT providers. The choice of the specialist subject to be inspected was determined in consultation with the provider and, in general, ensured that inspection focused on subjects to which individual providers had a reasonably substantial commitment.

During the academic year 2002/03, Ofsted visited eight higher education institutions and 23 FE colleges as part of a national survey to evaluate initial teacher training in FE.
