Statistics showing the number of teachers recruited each year against the Teacher Supply Model (TSM) targets for primary and secondary phases for the 2012/13 to 2016/17 academic years are available in table 1b of the ITT Census 2016/17 statistical publication[1]. Equivalent figures for 2010/11 and 2011/12 are available in table 1b of the ITT Census 2015/16 statistical publication[2].

Please note that due to methodology changes, the figures for 2015/16 and 2016/17 include Teach First trainees whereas earlier years do not.
