Statistical releases provide core numbers on applicants and applications at scheduled points in the application cycle.

In January 2019, The Department for Education (DfE) released its new teacher recruitment and retention strategy. As part of this, DfE confirmed its intention to launch its own postgraduate teacher training admissions service in England. This will initially go live with a small-scale pilot in the 2019/20 recruitment cycle, with a continued roll-out during the 2020/21 recruitment cycle. The pilot for this service went live in November 2019.

The statistics reported by UCAS in Reports A and B reflect the total number of applicants who have applied for postgraduate teacher training provision via the UCAS service, and do not include students that have been processed through the DfE service. Please note, the DfE application figures will be relatively small for the short term, and will be unlikely to have an impact on overall trends.
