Attracting potentially outstanding trainee teach¬ers into initial teacher teaching (ITT) are key challenges for our education system. However, the challenge of attracting the right kind of trainee hides the complexity of recognizing the barriers faced by many potential ME trainees. This paper explores the barriers faced by Minority Ethnic participants accessing teaching programs based in communities in the North West of England and proposes recommendations for supporting their trajectory into teaching.
