This briefing expresses universities' concerns about the impact of the next round of initial teacher training allocations on their ability to sustain teacher training provision. This includes the ability to sustain support for schools-led routes such as the School Direct programme.
It details Universities UK's call to government to:
• ensure sufficient core allocation is granted to universities to enable them to sustain provision, including the support that they offer to School Direct partnerships
• provide a greater degree of security to universities as to core allocation in future years, to enable them to plan and invest for the future
• make it easier to transfer unfilled allocation between different routes to ensure good candidates are not turned away
