General description

This table provides information about enrolments of students from Wales 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 standard registration population is a count of all enrolments within the reporting year 1 August to 31 July. Students who leave within 2 weeks of their start date, or anniversary of their start date, and are on a course of more than two weeks duration, are not included in the standard registration 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:
• Counts of people are rounded to the nearest multiple of 5.

Revisions information

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.

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.
