A Quick Start Guide for Schools 2014/15 is available with full details. There is also more information available for schools already taking part in the programme this year on the information for participating schools page.
In 2014/15 we are continuing to expand the programme as part of the aim for school-led initial teacher training to account for over half of teachers trained by the end of this parliament. You can read more about this in a speech from Charlie Taylor.
