Diversity in ITTE

Diversity in ITTE

Diverse Educators are working in collaboration with national organisations responsible for Initial Teacher Training and Education (ITTE) to amplify the conversations around diverse representation in recruiting and retaining diverse Early Career Teachers.

We are delighted to be working with training providers across the country to support the trainee teachers and their trainers/ mentors.

Our very popular training session for whole cohorts is here:

Our ITTE Training

We have a supporting DEI Toolkit here:

Our ITTE Providers' Toolkit

We also host an annual virtual DEI for ITTs conference in January. (Get in touch if you are a smaller SCITT and need a discount to be able to access the event).

We are delighted to be attending the UCET 2024 conference in Leeds where we will chair a panel of partners to share their best practice and learn from their challenges in their DEI work.

The training sessions Hannah delivers are brilliant, they are engaging, interesting and full of lots of practical strategies that can be adopted. Hannah delivers thought-provoking content and provides a valuable opportunity for our members to engage, share experience and expertise over a key subject.
