Dear Sussex Downs College,
I am writing to make an Open Government request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. In order to assist you with this request, I am outlining my query as specifically as possible. If, however, this request is too wide or unclear, I would be grateful if you could contact me as I understand that under the Act, you are required to advise and assist those who request information from you.
Firstly, from your most recent complete cohort data, how many teacher trainees successfully completed their training?
Secondly, how many of those same trainees were on an NQT placement at the end of their training, compared with how many were not employed (by a school full time) at the end of their training.
Lastly, How many of those same trainees were employed through a supply agency?
I understand that under the Act, I am entitled to a response within 20 working days. I would be grateful if you could confirm by email that you have received this request. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
Thank you for your request, I will respond as soon as possible.

Is this a question about staff employed by the College or trainee teachers who complete qualifications via SDC?
The college does not currently offer Trainee employment contracts, we employ people as Lecturers on the basis that they complete a teaching qualification. There would be a different response depending on whether we were specifically looking at Trainee Teachers (zero to each question) or Teachers who complete Teacher Training.
Please can you let me know?
