Quality Initial Teacher Education Review

Initial teacher education (ITE) aims to ensure graduate teachers start their teaching career with the necessary knowledge, skills and dispositions to be successful teachers in any Australian school.

Quality teaching is the greatest in-school influence on student outcomes. It is important to ensure that the expertise, experience and skill of teachers in the classroom is supported by quality ITE, which plays an integral role in selecting and training the future teacher workforce.

On 15 April 2021, the Hon Alan Tudge MP, Minister for Education and Youth, launched the Quality Initial Teacher Education Review (the Review).

The Review will broadly consider:

  1. Attracting and selecting high-quality candidates into the teaching profession
  2. Preparing ITE students to be effective teachers

The Quality Initial Teacher Education Review Discussion Paper is now available and submissions are open. Submissions will remain open until 18 July 2021.

If you would like to receive email updates about the Review, including further opportunities to have your say, you can register for email updates.
