Find out how we use the teacher supply model (TSM) to review how many initial teacher training places are needed each year.
The TSM is a statistical model used to estimate the future national need for teachers. The outcomes from the teacher supply model are used to:
- inform the initial teacher training (ITT) recruitment process
- help us meet the demand for the number of newly qualified teachers
This page provides the TSM (and accompanying user guide) for the 2016 to 2017 academic year along with versions published previously for the 2015 to 2016 training year.
