Background[edit]

Since ITTE was formed in 1986 it has supported the initial teacher training departments of universities and colleges of education in the United Kingdom with respect to the permeation of information communication technology (ICT) throughout all aspects of the learning process.

During 2003 – 2006, ITTE contributed to the IT Network Induction Project. This was a project designed to support new ICT tutors in initial teacher training. In 2006, ITTE was awarded the contract to manage phase two of the project.
