The number of teachers remains high, with more than 468,000 working in state-funded schools across the country, 27,000 more than in 2010.

Performance against target is reported in the Initial Teacher Training Census official statistics, in which the department publishes information on the numbers and characteristics of new entrants to ITT.

The recruitment cycle is still ongoing. Final data and headlines will be published in the Census in December 2024.
