Allocations methodology: ITT


Preliminary ITT targets for recruitment for academic year 2013 to 2014 by phase and subject are to be published in October 2012. These control totals will determine the overall limits on the allocated places which can be distributed across all ITT routes, including School Direct.

These will be reviewed following additional data available in November and December and final ITT recruitment control numbers will be confirmed in early 2013. Any changes that result from the final set of number controls may require amends to allocations - all places offered previously will be honoured.
