Discover Your Future, UCAS’ new corporate strategy

This week sees the launch of UCAS’ new corporate strategy, Discover Your Future, which establishes our ambition for 2020 – 2025. At its heart is our vision to connect students to their future, with a focus on personalisation and flexibility. It follows more than 300 hours of customer and stakeholder engagement, giving us a true picture of the future needs of the sector.

Important Updates

Capitation and application fees for the 2021 UCAS Teacher Training cycle
Following an annual review of capitation and application fees, there will be a small increase to prices for training providers in the 2021 UCAS Teacher Training admissions cycle. This will help us to deliver our vision for students, which has already started with the development of personalised resources like the UCAS Hub. This tool allows students to begin their research from one place, which they can tailor to their aspirations and preferences.

The capitation fees for the 2021 UCAS Teacher Training admissions cycle will be as follows:

Capitation fee
Price incl. VAT £31.50
Price excl. VAT £26.25
Change +1.9%

Application fees are also reviewed annually, and we will update you on any changes to this once they are confirmed.

Invoices for successfully placed applicants in the 2019 cycle
You’ll soon receive your capitation invoice for all successfully placed applicants in the 2019 admissions cycle. This invoice will be sent to your UCAS Teacher Training finance contact, where possible. For training providers who haven’t given a UCAS Teacher Training finance contact, the invoice will be sent to the UCAS Teacher Training correspondent.

Please note, invoices will be sent to the training provider that has recruited the applicants. We’re not able to issue invoices to alternative training providers where arrangements are in place between training providers within a partnership.
Analysis and Results

2020 cycle application statistics for February
On Thursday 27 February, we’ll publish application statistics for the 2020 UCAS Teacher Training cycle.
The reference point for these statistics is Monday 17 February. The figures are provided to you under embargo, until they are published on the UCAS Teacher Training statistical releases page of ucas.com, on Thursday 27 February.

Please note, the statistics in these reports reflect the total number of applicants who have applied through UCAS Teacher Training, and don’t include those who have applied through the DfE’s service. The DfE application figures will be relatively small for the short term, and are unlikely to have an impact on overall trends.

If you have any questions, please email communications@ucas.ac.uk.
