The TSM is a statistical model we use to estimate the future national need for teachers. The outcomes from the teacher supply model:

  • 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, a summary of the outputs and user guide for the 2017 to 2018 academic year.

Previous versions of the model are also available for the 2015 to 2016 and 2016 to 2017 academic years.
