ITT Strategic Role

What is the ITT Strategic Role?

The ITT Strategic Role is all about giving regions across England the tools they need to train the next generation of teachers effectively. Designated by the Department for Education (DfE), this responsibility falls on all Teaching School Hubs (TSH) to provide crucial support to initial teacher training (ITT) providers and schools in their local areas.


Here in County Durham, as your Teaching School Hub, we aim to build stronger connections with ITT providers and schools across our region. By working closely together, we can ensure that aspiring teachers receive the top-tier training they deserve.
