MAT teacher training rated better than universities

Tes is reporting that school based teacher training in multi academy trusts has performed better in Ofsted inspections than training provided in other schools or universities, new statistics reveal.

The figures show almost half (47 per cent) of the school centred initial teacher training (SCITT) in MATs is rated as outstanding compared with just over a third (36 per cent) of school based training run by schools that are not part of trust.

Data published by Ofsted today also shows that overall SCITTs are rated better than higher education institutions with 41 per cent judged to be outstanding compared with 28 per cent of university courses, a slight narrowing of the gap from last year.
