The trainee numbers census is an annual data collection of trainee registrations in each academic year. The collection covers initial teacher training (ITT).

You will find detail on provisional recruitment to initial teacher training programmes in England in the academic year 2013 to 2014.

The data includes the number of trainees and information about trainees on initial teacher training programmes, recorded on Wednesday 9 October 2013.

There is also a forecast of the number of trainees expected to commence training later in the academic year.

The information collected is used to:

  • determine funding and holdback for ITT providers
  • monitor the recruitment of under-represented groups in ITT
  • monitor the recruitment of new entrants against intake targets
