Initial Teacher Education: baseline study of provider support

Report on the hours within Initial Teacher Education (ITE) programmes dedicated to areas such as literacy, numeracy and equality.

This report is the first attempt to understand the way in which ITE providers support student teachers to develop the knowledge, skills and attributes required to be a 21st century teacher in Scotland. It should be considered a baseline study which provides evidence of one area of the ITE provision, i.e. the number of hours dedicated to each key area of literacy, numeracy, health and wellbeing, equality and data literacy.

This initial data collection exercise has shown that there are differences in the time dedicated to key areas above, both within programmes, undergraduate (primary), postgraduate (primary), postgraduate (secondary) and across the type of programme i.e. comparing dedicated number of hours to key areas across programmes.
