Response to the Independent Working Group on a Core ITT Framework

Our response emphasises the importance of subject-specific knowledge, pedagogy, skills and community engagement.

National Curriculum Review

Our response calls for greater emphasis on fundamental knowledge, understanding and skills, and advocates for subject-specialist staff and later implementation of streaming into vocational or academic pathways.

The Draft Education Inspection Framework

We strongly support the introduction of a ‘quality of education’ judgement and the publication of Ofsted subject reviews. We also comment on the wording of Intent, Implementation and Impact statements.

Consultation on the second Research Excellence Framework
