Dear Theo, DFES number

    Dear Theo,
    I'm in my last year of my degree and just starting to apply for jobs now (fear I may have left it too late), every application form asks for a GTC and/or DFES number, I've read elsewhere that this is the same thing. How do I find out what my number is?
    Thanks, Amy

    Yes they're the same number.
    The number will relate to the year you enrolled for teacher training and then a 5/6 digit number in my case.

    People are still using up old forms . . . DFES hasn't existed for ages, GTC has been abolished . . . but as Lara says it's just a number that shows when you qualified.
    I think mine is something like 67/12345. Just shows how long I've been around!
    If you haven't got a number yet (I'm not sure when they issue them), then just put Pending in the box.
    Hope you have been reading the advice in the Shortlisting cliakables inside the Welcome thread.
    Best wishes
