Outcomes

Selection into ITE programs is responsive to entrant progress and outcomes

Performance indicator

ITE providers regularly review their selection methods based on progress and outcomes data

When will we know more?

As cohort data is analysed in relation to program entry and reported on, the evidence base identifying the contribution of selection to success as a teacher will grow. This data will be received from mid-2019 onwards as ITE providers progressively gather and provide this data through their stage 2 accreditation applications.

Outcomes

High proportion of entrants complete ITE programs and are equipped to be effective teachers

Performance indicator

Increase in ITE student retention rates

Currently available data indicates the completion rate of the 2011 intake of ITE students was 63% for undergraduate and postgraduate combined (AITSL 2018 ITE data report, not yet published).

When will we know more?

By 2020 – 2021, many ITE providers will have been selecting entrants on academic and non-academic capabilities for a number of years, and would have collected and analysed evidence on the relationship between retention and attrition data as part of their annual reporting and stage two accreditation applications.
