The number of International Defence Training places provided to partners at UK training establishments over the last five Financial Years (FY) is as follows:

2010-11 - 3,418

2011-12 - 3,087

2012-13 - 3,048

2013-14 - 2,674

2014-15 - 3,078

We provide International Defence Training places on a wide variety of military training courses. The allocation and take-up of places is a flexible process, driven partly by demand, and managed through arrangements particular to each course. Allocations are generally not programmed more than a year in advance. We cannot quantify in advance the total number of training places which will be offered in each year but intend to increase the training we offer to international partners. We have identified additional places on a number of specific courses including, for example, at the Defence Academy and the Royal College of Defence Studies.
