Replacing the ‘Teaching apprenticeship’ question for accredited providers

One of the priorities for the reforms to the initial teacher training (ITT) criteria is to make ITT less complex for providers, candidates and trainees.

As part of the reforms, all providers can now offer salaried courses.

What we changed

In Publish teacher training courses (Publish), we have two ways of describing how courses are funded.

If the provider is a school, we show a ‘Funding type’ question with 3 options:

  • Fee paying - no salary
  • Salary
  • Teaching apprenticeship - with salary

If the provider is a higher education institution (HEI) or school-centred initial teacher training (SCITT), we display the question, ‘Is this a teaching apprenticeship?’. This question has 2 options:

  • Yes
  • No

Selecting ‘Yes’ is the equivalent of selecting the funding type, ‘Teaching apprenticeship - with salary’.

Selecting ‘No’ is the equivalent of selecting the funding type ‘Fee paying - no salary’.

We replaced the ‘Teaching apprenticeship’ question with ‘Funding type’ for all provider types, simplifying the ‘Add course’ and the edit course flows.

We also changed the ‘Fee paying - no salary’ option, removing the word ‘paying’.
