I have a postcard addressed to Arthur Leaver (posted 28 June 1943); does anyone know what “ITC” in this address stands for?

Pte. A. Leaver
14629374
9 Platoon
C. Comy.
55 P.T.W.
5 ITC
The Barracks
Richmond
Yorks

PTW (Primary Training Wing)

I found several WWII references to "Initial Training Centre" though not specifically to No 5 ITC.

Thanks Mel and Charon! Now I want to look at the Burnley express to see if I can find a mention of him.
