Dear Furness 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.
For clarification, Furness College is a general further education college
and although staff take initial teacher training qualifications, training
is generally completed in-service and under a contract of employment. To
answer your questions:
1. 6 staff completed their teacher training qualification in 2016
2. None were contracted as NQTs, all six were on full-time contracts
3. None were employed by supply agencies
I hope that this information is sufficient to fulfil your request. Please
contact me using this email address if you require further clarification.
If you require no further clarification or information, I will consider
that your request has been fully answered.
