|Total number of trainees on ITT courses|
|(1) Technology includes design and technology (including textiles), food technology, information communications technology and business studies.|
(2 )Other includes dance, humanities, law, media studies, PHSE, psychology, classics, economics, social sciences and social studies. The category also includes recruits to Key Stage 2/3 with no subject specialism from 2002/03 to 2005/06.
1. Numbers shown are rounded to the nearest 10.
2. Figures include trainees through the Graduate Teacher Programme (GTP), the Registered Teacher Programme (RTP), the Overseas Trained Teacher Programme (OTTP) and Teach First (TF).
3. Figures are taken from the employment based routes data management system (EBRDMS). 2006/07 figures are as at 23 July 2007 and are subject to change. Teach First began in 2003/04 and TF data has been included on EBRDMS since 2005/06. Figures for TF for 2003/04 and 2004/05 are taken from the Teach First organisation.
4. Trainees who withdrew before their programme start date are removed from the aforementioned data.
5. The aforementioned table is based on the assumption that all RTP trainees complete their training within two academic years. Therefore RTP trainees are counted in both the academic year in which their programme starts and in the following academic year. It should be noted that some courses may in fact be spread over three or more academic years.
6. The aforementioned table is based on the assumption that all GTP and OTTP trainees complete their training within one academic year. Therefore GTP and OTTP trainees are counted only once, in the academic year in which their programme starts. It should be noted that some courses may in fact be spread over two or more academic years.
7. TF is a two year programme, which includes one years initial teacher training. Therefore TF trainees are counted once in the academic year in which their programme starts.
