The study has completed internal reports on Strand 1 (Examination of where chemistry ITT places currently are in England and how they might best be allocated in the next few years) and Strand 2 (Review of the impact and effectiveness of current and proposed ITT routes into chemistry teaching in England). A small workshop on findings to date for England will take place in November 2013.

The focus of the study is now on an international comparisons exercise learning from chemistry/science ITT models in a selection of countries in Europe, North America, Australasia and the Far East.

A final report on policy recommendations is currently on schedule for December 2013 submission.
