    • The data include enrolments and qualifications for teachers in the early childhood, VET and higher education sectors as well as for primary and secondary school teachers.
    • The data takes into account the coding of combined courses to two fields of education. As a consequence, counting both fields of education for combined courses means that the total may be less than the sum of the individual fields of education.
    • Any data point with a value of less than 5 has been adjusted to 5, and totals have been adjusted accordingly.
