Question for Department for Education

UIN 30, tabled on 27 May 2015

Neither of the two university training schools is open and therefore neither currently holds an allocation of places.

In the first year of opening (2015/16), the University of Cambridge Training School has no plans to take on any trainees. It plans to take on up to three trainees per year in the 2016/17 and 2017/18 academic years.

In the first three years of opening, the University of Birmingham Training School plans to host up to 12 trainees or placements from partner schools.
