Applicable toEngland
CoverageAll students where details of school placements are known.

Only required where a student's first placement is known at the census date.

ITT students are expected to have completed at least one placement. This detail needs to be entered against each trainee.

If a trainee carries out more placements than can be listed, please enter the top five in terms of time spent in total at each placement.

Notes from the DfE:

This data will not be used to measure statutory requirements, its purpose is to determine if there is any relationship between where a student completes placements and where they are subsequently employed as teachers.

Placements may be combined into a single entry for a single placement, as this adds weight to a placement in a particular school, and might lend weight to the reason a trainee ends up being employed.
