Alpha prototype

The Register teacher trainee service exists to support the exchange of data on trainee teachers in England between accredited Initial Teacher Training (ITT) providers and the DfE.

Each year the service provides data on approximately 40,000 trainee teachers across 632 institutions in England.

The Register alpha focused on replacing an existing DfE product, the Database of trainee teachers and providers (DTTP) and ran from 27 April to the end of July, with an assessment in early August.

Next steps

The alpha produced a static prototype hosted on InVision.

A functional prototype is being built which will enable us to gather further insights from research.

The team has identified areas in the current prototype that will require further thought for the functional prototype such as:

  • the ‘add a record’ journey includes a form split over multiple tabs which presents accessibility and usability issues
  • adding multiples of things such as education qualifications and diversity information
  • adding personal details for candidates/trainees that either studied or are living overseas
