This commissioned research report identifies the principles and characteristics necessary for Initial Teacher Education (ITE) programs to embed evidence-based teaching practices.

This report presents the evidence base and value for each principle, followed by alignment with the National Program Standards for accreditation and potential considerations for the panel.
