General description

This table provides information about the qualifications gained by students from Wales enrolled on courses of Initial Teacher Training (ITT) leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) provided through UK higher education institutions.

To teach as a qualified teacher in a maintained school or non-maintained special school in Wales or England, students need to obtain QTS. Students can do this by either undertaking a first degree course which combines a degree - usually a BEd, BA or BSc - with QTS or by completing a PGCE course which leads to QTS. There are alternative employment-based routes to obtaining QTS but these are not covered in this bulletin.

Figures represent all year enrolments and have been rounded to the nearest 5. From 2007/08 the registration population will not include those students on sabbatical or writing-up.

Data reference periods

The HESA qualifications obtained population is a count of student instances associated with the award of an HE qualification (excluding HE institutional credits) during the HESA reporting period 1 August to 31 July. This includes qualifications awarded from suspended study (e.g. dormancy) and writing-up status. It excludes awards to incoming visiting and exchange students, students primarily studying abroad, and qualifications awarded with an end date of more than 3 years prior to the reporting period.

Rounding applied

The presentation of figures in this table follows the principals of the HESA rounding strategy. The strategy is intended to prevent the disclosure of personal information about any individual. This strategy involves rounding all numbers to the nearest 5. A summary of this strategy is as follows:
• Counts of people are rounded to the nearest multiple of 5.

Revisions information

To ensure data on enrolments and qualifiers on Initial Teacher Education courses is comparable, Schools Direct data was removed from qualifiers tables between 2012/13 and 2015/16.

Prior to publication of the 2021/22 data, students on ‘Early Years Initial Teacher Training’ courses were included in the data. These students are no longer treated as QTS students and are therefore removed from the data. 2020/21 figures were revised to reflect this change. The impact of this change appears to be minimal.

Prior to publication of the 2021/22 data, students on ‘Postgraduate Diploma in Education’ courses were incorrectly treated as PGCE students, resulting in an over-reporting of students on PGCE courses. These students are now treated as students on ‘Other’ degrees where they lead to QTS. 2020/21 data was revised to reflect this change. The impact of this change appears to be minimal.
