2012 Review of the National Teaching Fellowship Scheme

In 2012, the National Teaching Fellowship Scheme (NTFS) underwent a review. The aim of this was to examine the impact of the scheme, critically review its shape and operation, and ensure that it continues to afford maximum benefit to the sector in recognising and rewarding teaching excellence.

We are pleased to announce that the report on the findings from the NTFS review is now published.  The Report and the Appendix are available to download below. We would like to emphasise that recommendations from the review will be implemented in two phases: phase one in 2012/13, and phase two in 2013/14.
