Teacher training colleges received significantly more applications this year than in previous years. The increase is most pronounced in part time training, with 1,735 people registering before the summer holidays. That is 30 percent more than last year, NRC reports.
Shortened part-time courses did even better, with registrations doubling to 350. Full-time courses saw an increase of 11 percent to 7,864 registrations. These figures come from mid-June.
