  1. Only trainees who have course outcomes are included. Previously, trainees who were 'yet to complete' were included so figures are not comparable with previous publications. Historical figures have been revised in this publication. See methodology for further details.
  2. This publication was produced using data extracted from the Register Trainee Teachers service for the first time. This is a move from the previous data source, DTTP (Database of Teacher Training Providers). See methodology for further details.
  3. Warning: percentages have been rounded and therefore may not sum to 100%.
  4. Twelve 2017/18 trainees on the EYITT – School Direct training route were previously grouped in EYITT graduate entry but are now correctly grouped in EYITT graduate employment-based.
  5. Trainees who were not awarded EYTS are those who ended their training during the year and either left the course before the end (excluding those who left the course within 90 days of the start) or did not meet the standards.
  6. The EYITT assessment only route is not included in this publication.
  7. Trainees' age is as recorded on 31st July 2022.
  8. Sex was previously reported as gender. This has been updated as it was previously mislabelled.
  9. For 2021/22, trainees who chose not to provide data on sex have been included in an 'Unknown' category. Prior to this they were included in 'Other'.
  10. Degree classes relate to postgraduate ITT trainees only. From 2021/22, where possible, the first UK degree awarded has been selected. If no UK degree was awarded, the first non-UK degree awarded was selected.
  11. Those with non-UK degrees or degree-equivalent qualifications are assigned UK style classifications where known.
  12. 'Upper second' degree class includes undivided second degree class.
  13. Other degree class includes third class honours degrees, and ‘ordinary’ or ‘general’ degrees awarded after a non-honours course, and degrees awarded after a non-honours course that was not available to be classified. It also includes other categories from non-UK degrees.
  14. Other ethnicity includes the Arab ethnic background.
