Initial teacher training
The latest release updates the statistics previously released on 15 March 2012. This bulletin is based on statistics produced by the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA).
Each year the Welsh Government sets intake targets for recruitment to Initial Teacher Training (ITT) courses in Wales. There has been a year on year decline in first year enrolments on ITT courses in Wales in recent years, but this must be viewed in the context of the policy to reduce the number of new entrants to ITT courses. In 2011/12 the intake targets were reduced to 750 enrolments for Primary phase and 1,030 for Secondary phase.
Welsh Higher Education Institutions:
- there were 1,760 first year enrolments on ITT courses in Wales, one per cent lower than in 2010/11 and 24 per cent lower than in 2005/06
- the number of students completing ITT courses in Wales was five per cent lower than in 2010/11. Of these completers, 13 per cent completed a course that either enabled them to teach bilingually or led to a formal certificate of bilingual education
Welsh domiciled ITT students:
- the number of first year Welsh domiciled students enrolled on ITT courses in Wales fell by two per cent to 1,400 since 2010/11. There was a two per cent increase in enrolments from outside Wales
- 80 per cent of first year students on ITT courses in Wales were Welsh domiciled, the same proportion as in the previous two years and three percentage points higher than in 2005/06
