To ask the Secretary of State for Education, in what years her Department has not met its target for teacher recruitment for (a) primary and (b) secondary schools from 2010 to 2017.
24 July 2017
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. Equivalent figures for 2010/11 and 2011/12 are available in table 1b of the ITT Census 2015/16 statistical publication.
Please note that due to methodology changes, the figures for 2015/16 and 2016/17 include Teach First trainees whereas earlier years do not.
