The Initial Teacher Training (ITT) Census publishes experimental statistics on the number of new entrants to Early Years ITT, including a breakdown by route. Data going back to academic year 2016/17 are available in the latest ITT Census publication, available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/initial-teacher-training-trainee-number-census-2017-to-2018.

The department is unable to provide any data collected prior to the experimental statistics released with the ITT Census on 24 November 2016.
