They are also obliged to prepare and submit an education outturn statement (containing details of the actual expenditure and funding of schools and LAs during the financial year) at the end of each financial year.

1. The financial information used in the answer to this PQ is taken from the Department's s52 data collection.
2. 1999-2000 saw a change in data source when the data collection moved from the R01 form collected by CLG to the Section 52 form from the DCSF. 2002-03 saw a further break in the time series following the introduction of consistent financial reporting (CFR) and the associated restructuring of the outturn tables. The change in sources is shown by blank rows.
3. Pupil numbers include only those pupils attending maintained establishments within each sector and are drawn from the DCSF annual schools census adjusted to be on a financial year basis.
4. Local government reorganisation (LGR) took place during the mid to late 1990's
5. Expenditure was not distinguished between the pre-primary and primary sectors until the inception of Section 52 for financial year 1999-2000.
6. School based expenditure in LA maintained nursery schools was not recorded in 2002-03 and comparable figures are not available for 2003-04 onwards.

TDA's Trainee Numbers Census
Michael Gove: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many entrants into the Graduate Teacher Programme were (a) under 23, (b) between 23 and 25, (c) between 26 and 30, (d) between 31 and 35, (e) between 36 and 40, (f) between 41 and 45 and (g) over 45 years old in (i) 1997, (ii) 2003 and (iii) the last year for which figures are available. 
Mr. Coaker [holding answer 2 March 2010]: The available information is presented in the table and shows the number of trainees at the end of their first year of the Graduate Teacher Programme by age group in 2003/04 and 2007/08.
The Graduate Teacher Programme (GTP) was introduced in 1997/98 as a route for mature trainees
with a lower age limit of 24. The anticipation of age discrimination legislation and a desire to widen access to GTP without threatening postgraduate and undergraduate routes led to the removal of the age restriction. The age limitation did not apply from 2003/04 in anticipation of the introduction of the age discrimination regulations in 2006 (Equal Employment (Age) regulations 2006).
