Main tables: SFR48/2014


The data includes the number of trainees and information about trainees on initial teacher training (ITT) programmes.

There’s also a forecast of the number of trainees we expect to commence training later in the academic year.

We use the information to:

  • determine funding for ITT providers

  • monitor the recruitment of under-represented groups in ITT

  • monitor the recruitment of new entrants against intake targets
