The Graduate Teacher Training Registry (GTTR) is an admissions service that processes applications for full-time and part-time postgraduate teacher training courses at:
The deadline for receipt of primary teaching course applications to guarantee consideration at the applicant's first choice training provider was 1 December 2011. This 1 December deadline does not apply to applications for middle years, secondary, post-compulsory or further education teaching courses.
Applications for teacher training courses can also be made through the Graduate Teacher Programme (GTP) and other routes. These applications are not processed by the GTTR and are therefore not included in these statistics.
GTTR applicant statistics will be published on the first Monday of each calendar month for the remainder of the 2012 cycle.

During the 2011 cycle, many training providers received confirmation of places available for their courses in January; this information was issued in December 2011 for 2012 places. The GTTR advises providers to make offers to applicants only if they are certain places will be available in the autumn.
