Figures showing the number of final year teacher trainees awarded Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) by the region of their ITT provider in each year from 2013 onwards can be found in the ITT Performance Profiles statistical series, available here:[1] https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/statistics-teacher-training.

Information on the proportion of teachers who enter service as a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) in the state-funded school sector in England immediately after gaining QTS that remain in service in the following year is available in the online application published alongside the Teachers analysis compendium 4: Analysis of teacher supply, retention and mobility publication as referenced in the question, with figures at regional level extracted from the application provided in the table below.

[1] Data for 2013/14 can be calculated from Table 6a of the provider-level tables for 2013/14. Data for the proportion of those awarded QTS in 2014/15 are in Figure 5 of the main text for 2014/15. Data for 2015/16 are in Figure 8 of the main text for 2015/16. Data for 2016/17 are in Table 9 of the provider-level tables for 2016/17.

[2] Note some trainees gaining QTS will not immediately enter service as an NQT in the state-funded sector in England but may enter the state-funded school sector at a later date.
