Data collection schedule

Version 1.1 Produced 2018-10-05

The details of students on an ITT course need to be forwarded to the Department for Education (DfE) for the purpose of allocating a Teacher Reference Number (TRN). Data for all DfE-funded ITT provision must be provided as a first submission by 2nd October 2018, and should be finalised by the 19th October 2018. The DfE census date is 10th October 2018. The DfE will use this data to create the Trainee Numbers Census. Timings for the QTS and Induction division of the DfE 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 2018 - 31 July 2019. As there are likely to be many commencement dates HESA will not be monitoring or chasing up individual submissions.
