Ofsted is responsible for making judgements about the quality of training provided by all providers and their partnerships. All initial teacher training (ITT) partnerships in Coventry and the West Midlands were judged to be either good or outstanding at their most recent Ofsted inspection. Across England, 99% of ITT partnerships were judged to be either good or outstanding at their most recent Ofsted inspection.

The latest newly qualified teacher (NQT) survey report was published on 5 September 2018. NQTs were largely positive about the quality of their ITT – 81% rated overall quality as 7-10 out of 10. This is a sample survey of NQTs who gained qualified teacher status (QTS) status between December 2015 and November 2016, therefore regional level analysis is not possible.
