Nick Gibb, the schools minister, has pledged to consider proposals that could see the public sector copy the recruitment programme followed by the Teach First scheme.
Founded in 2002, the scheme recruits high-flying graduates to the profession, insisting on top degrees and asking prospective teachers to pass a series of aptitude tests.
Mr Gibb made the pledge after the Commons Education Select Committee recommended that universities continue to play a significant role in training teachers.
"As all the evidence from around the world shows, nothing is more important for raising standards in our schools than ensuring that we have more great teachers," Mr Gibb commented.
"This report supports the government's strategy for teacher recruitment as being appropriately focused on attracting top graduates into the profession and giving them outstanding training."
Earlier this year, Sir Michael Wilshaw, the head of Ofsted, revealed that he plans to put more pressure on those teachers who are merely "coasting" through their jobs.
