  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. Other subject includes economics, general sciences, media & communication studies, psychology and social sciences.
  4. There were 14 of 1,516 AO candidates who were included in the 2020/21 release, for whom the end date has subsequently been revised to 2021/22. Figures for 2020/21 have been revised to reflect this.
  5. Total trainees for 2017/18 excludes one AO trainee with missing subject information.
  6. The EYITT assessment only route is not included in this publication.
