'Named day' questions only occur in the House of Commons. The MP tabling the question specifies the date on which they should receive an answer. MPs may not table more than five named day questions on a single day.
The Department uses the Teacher Supply Model (TSM) to estimate national postgraduate Initial Teacher Training (ITT) place requirements for primary and each secondary subject to meet future demand. As a national model, the TSM is not used to assess teachers needed in each region. The most recently published model (covering 2018/19 ITT) is available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/tsm-and-initial-teacher-training-allocations-2018-to-2019. Models relating to previous ITT recruitment rounds can be found via the same link.
To support ITT providers we have also published a range of analysis on local teacher supply in the first two teachers analysis compendiums:
Data on the number of teacher trainees recruited to ITT may be found within the ITT census publication. The number of new trainees per region is found in table 9. The latest published data is available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/initial-teacher-training-trainee-number-census-2017-to-2018.
