No training dip

Your article "'Crisis' looms as economic recovery threatens inner-city teacher supply" (May 21) gives a partial picture of teacher recruitment figures. As we pointed out, applications are again up this year on last, which was itself a record year. The rate of acceleration has been less over the past weeks, which is normal for this time of year, but applications are not slowing down, and certainly not declining. We are already 48 per cent towards our target with maths accepted applicants, and 58 per cent with science, both up on last year. Some crisis.
