Accreditation for teacher training from September 2020

The University of South Wales (USW) has been granted accreditation for its primary teaching course starting in September 2020.

The BA (Hons) Primary ITE with QTS has been given approval for five years by the Education Workforce Council (EWC).

The EWC’s Accreditation of Initial School Teacher Education Committee approved the programme with some conditions. USW has until July 19 to ensure it meets with these.

Dr Linda Evans, Dean of the Faculty of Life Sciences and Education, said: “A huge amount of effort has gone into ensuring that USW was granted accreditation from the EWC.

“The dedicated team in USW’s School of Education, Early Years and Social Work together with its partner schools, have worked tirelessly on this, and I am delighted that we will be able to continue providing the top-class education and facilities that are the hallmark of USW’s teacher education.”
