The inspections of initial teacher education form an important part of Ofsted's work. Over the past few years, the weight of inspection has been reduced in step with improvements that providers have made to the quality of provision.
This consultation document outlines our proposals for the inspections of initial teacher education from September 2008. We would like to encourage all of you with an interest in the development of inspections of initial teacher education to consider the proposals and let us know your views by 7 April 2008.

In 1996, the Department for Education and Employment outlined requirements for teacher training courses for the 7-14 age range. By 1998, 20 providers were running Key Stage 2/3 courses. From 1998 to 2002, all courses of initial teacher training were required to meet DfES criteria. Ofsted has inspected the generic Key Stage 2 training of 16 providers offering Key Stage 2/3 courses separately from the specialist subject training at Key Stage 3.
