star this property answer text <p>When it is determined that technical issues affected a test, the outcome is annulled and the candidate is allowed a free resit. It is not possible to change the mark awarded for a test, since the score the candidate would have achieved had they not experienced the technical issue cannot be determined. It would, therefore, be inappropriate to change the outcome, for example from fail to pass, without such evidence. Where an appeal is successful, the only option available is to allow the candidate a further attempt at the relevant skills test.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We use the teacher supply model (TSM) to estimate the optimum number of teacher trainees required to start in any academic year. The TSM models trainees across the primary phase; it does not distinguish between early years, primary specialists and other individual primary courses. A technical description of the TSM is published online at:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/teacher-supply-model-a-technical-description" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/publications/teacher-supply-model-a-technical-description</a></p><p>The number of places allocated is not a target and should not be regarded as one. This year, as we do every year, we have over-allocated initial teacher training (ITT) places above the number of required trainees estimated by the TSM. This helps us to ensure we train enough teachers, taking account of the likely level of recruitment in each subject.</p><p>We have published data showing the number of places allocated in each subject. This is published online at:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/initial-teacher-training-allocations-for-academic-year-2014-to-2015" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/statistics/initial-teacher-training-allocations-for-academic-year-2014-to-2015</a></p><p>UCAS has published recruitment information for the 2014/15 academic year by subject.
