As an Initial Teacher Training (ITT) provider, the institute will be subject to the same requirements that apply to all other ITT providers. The institute will need to secure accreditation to deliver ITT, or partner with an accredited provider, prior to delivery.
The Department expects that the institute will register as a higher education provider with the Office for Students in order to acquire degree awarding powers. This will give the institute the ability to independently award its own Postgraduate Certificates in Education.
