General description
This table provides information about students who are active on 1st December on courses of Initial Teacher Training (ITT) leading to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) provided through Welsh 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 Postgraduate Certificate in Education (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 enrolments at December 1st and have been rounded to the nearest 5. From 2007/08 the December population will not include students who are on sabbatical or writing-up.

Care should be taken when comparing data on all students over time since courses lengths can vary. For example, many previously 4 year first degree courses are now 3 year courses.

Data reference periods
The HESA December population is a count of all active student instances at the 1st December during the reporting period. Students who leave before this date, or who enrol after this date are not included in the December population. Dormant students, incoming visiting and exchange students from overseas and students studying for the whole of their programme of study outside of the UK are also excluded from this population.

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:
• 0, 1, 2 are rounded to 0 and represented as '*'.
• All other numbers are rounded to the nearest 5


Statistical quality
Care should be taken when comparing data on all students over time since courses lengths can vary. For example, many previously 4 year first degree courses are now 3 year courses.
