1) Totals include valid trainees on a placement at a PRU or a school with a PRU attached.

2) The number of trainee teachers at a PRU is sometimes not known, because PRUs may be attached to a maintained school, and trainee teachers may not necessarily be at the PRU.

3) The numbers have increased in line with the increase in School Direct numbers and the increase in the number of placement schools.
