An investigation into [perceptions of] the features of Christian foundation universities’ Initial Teacher Education (ITE) programmes that are particular to the university’s Christian foundation.

We are grateful to the Cathedrals Group of Universities and Colleges, for funding the first stage of this project and the Church of England University and College Fund for funding the second stage, through grant funding.

This report contains the outcomes of the research which took place between November 2016 and January 2018. A separate document, What really matters about teacher education at Cathedrals Group universities and college? Volume 2: The Case Studies, provides profiles of the findings from the five different institutions. This is the substantive report.

The aims:
1. To investigate why ITE trainees choose Christian foundation university teacher training programmes
2. To investigate why schools choose Christian foundation universities as training programme partners
3. To investigate what Christian foundation universities claim is particular to their Christian foundation, what is
particularly or deeply Christian about their ITE provision with a focus on: • the underpinning values
• the content and methodology of ITE training
• how trainees are supported and challenged in the partnership aspects
4. To investigate what Christian foundation universities, ITE trainees and partnership schools claim about ITE trainees at the point of qualification, that is particular to the institutions’ Christian foundation.
