Need help choosing an initial teacher training (ITT) provider? Visit our Performance Profiles website to search for and compare universities, colleges and schools.
Explore our specially developed Performance Profiles website. This dedicated database allows you to search through and define your ITT options – making it easier to find providers that meet your requirements.
What can you find out from the Performance Profiles?
The Performance Profiles database contains yearly data on all the universities, colleges or school-centred initial teacher training (SCITT) providers in England.
Each ITT provider's record includes its contact details, the courses it offers, the characteristics of its trainees and details of their qualifications on entry to the course.
These records also provide information, based on Ofsted inspection evidence, about the quality of providers' ITT courses, the proportion of their trainees gaining qualified teacher status (QTS) on completion of their training, and how many enter a teaching job within six months of successfully completing the course.
Using the Performance Profiles to search for ITT providers
In addition to enabling you to review and compare the detailed characteristics of ITT providers, our Performance Profiles website also allows you to search for a provider or group of providers according to a range of different criteria, including:
- age group
- National College for Teaching and Leadership quality category
- training route
By using these criteria individually or together, you can generate a shortlist of ITT providers that match your preferences. You can then compare providers using the reports provided and narrow down your options further still.
Go to the Performance Profiles website and start comparing ITT providers.
Please note that the Performance Profiles cover ITT providers in England only.
You can also view the provider list of ITT entrants by degree class (PDF, 203KB), which shows the distribution of degree class by provider for those entering ITT in 2011. When viewing these figures, please also consider them in the context of a provider's mission and the balance of ITT subjects between institutions. For example, a smaller proportion of trainees with top degrees currently enter maths or the sciences than other subjects. Please visit the why degree class matters page for further information.
