Initial Teacher Training record 2016/17 - Data collection schedule

Version 1.0 Produced 2016-05-19

The details of students on an ITT course need to be forwarded to the National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) for the purpose of allocating a Teacher Reference Number (TRN). Data for all NCTL-funded ITT provision must be provided as a first submission by 3rd October 2016, and should be finalised by the 21st October 2016. The NCTL census date is 12th October 2016. The NCTL will use this data to create the Trainee Numbers Census. Timings for the QTS and Induction division of the NCTL are very much dependent on the start date of the individual student on the course and could be at any time in the reporting period 01 August 2016 - 31 July 2017. As there are likely to be many commencement dates HESA will not be monitoring or chasing up individual submissions.
