This article contains guidance on how you can contribute to the Teacher Training Resource Bank.
The TTRB is a resource for the profession by the profession. The TTRB aims to be a one-stop portal for the profession to gain authoritative, credible and relevant briefings on the evidence and debates that inform the development of practice. It has an extensive quality assurance process and attempts to engage with the emerging agendas that are relevant to its users.
You can comment on existing articles and provide feedback by contributing to the feedback page.
There are also on-line surveys to complete for tutors, mentors and trainees.
You can suggest a resource to be reviewed by emailing email@example.com. The resource will be added to our review pipeline if it meets our inclusion criteria.
We have a growing team of reviewers whose work goes through a three stage process of moderation and classification. Our reviewers find that they have benefited from the reviews on the TTRB and wish to play their part. Some have also said that they would have had to consider the materials that they reviewed as part of their teaching or research in any event.
Reviews are written for our target audience of teacher educators, school based mentors, trainee and early career teachers. The purpose of a review is to engage our different audiences with the source material by indicating its relevance and how it fits into the bigger picture of teaching or initial teacher education. Contact the TTRB if you are interested in reviewing materials stating your areas of interest or expertise.

We will also be offering opportunities to publish overviews and summaries of key areas of concern to ITE in a new journal.
In addition and subject to our inclusion criteria and review process.
Journal Editors can make available articles for our registered users area of the TTRB to highlight the relevance of their journal to ITE. Some journal issues have been on the front page under our regular 'Featured Journal' slot.
Publishers and their authors may wish to discuss the possibility of the inclusion of sample chapters of work reviewed in the TTRB or archive education video that might be usefully repurposed in a streamed format.
