The TTRB welcomes delegates at the ECER Conference in Vienna

Vienna Conference

Welcome to the TTRB which is a resource to promote evidence informed practice in teaching and learning that has a focus on the initial teacher education. It is free to access.

This is a resource for the profession by the profession and we encourage you to register and use the resource for your courses. The TTRB is supported by the English Training and Development Agency for Schools but it has an independent four stage quality assurance process for all materials published administered by staff from Canterbury Christ Church University. We are seeking to improve our European coverage.

The British Education Index is a part of the TTRB consortium and all materials are classified using the British Education Thesaurus. If you are presenting a paper that you think is relevant to the TTRB (please see inclusion criteria below) ensure that you submit it to the BEI Education Line during the conference and notify the TTRB team via We will feature selected papers and other highlights from the conference on the TTRB in forthcoming weeks.

The TTRB also includes a question and answer service administrated by an e-librarian from the University of London, Institute of Education.

We have included links below to articles that:

  • Describe how the resource can support new teacher educators
  • Provide examples of how the TTRB can enhance course programmes for ITE
  • Outline how you can contribute to the TTRB including our inclusion criteria

We hope that you find the both ECER conference and the TTRB to be stimulating resources.


Below you will find a link to the slides from the paper, Do novice teachers really need research?, given by the TTRB content team.
