Footnotes

  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. There were 764 postgraduate trainees awarded QTS of 35,371 total postgraduate trainees 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.
  3. There were 197 undergraduate trainees awarded QTS of 4,737 total undergraduate trainees 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Warning: percentages have been rounded and therefore may not sum to 100%.
  6. Other subject includes economics, general sciences, media & communication studies, psychology and social sciences.
  7. EBacc subjects here includes English, mathematics, modern foreign languages, physics, biology, chemistry, history, geography, computing and classics.
  8. Trainees who were not awarded QTS 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.
  9. Teaching in a state-funded school is the number of trainees registered as employed in a state-funded school in England within 16 months of the academic year end. For 2021/22, figures are provisional (uplifted), previous years are revised. Due to rounding, the sum of constituent parts may differ from the reported total. See methodology for further details.
  10. Percentage of those awarded QTS teaching in a state-funded school is the percentage of trainees awarded QTS who are employed in a state-funded school in England within 16 months of the academic year end. For 2021/22, employment rate figures are provisional (uplifted), all prior years are revised.
