How about, Trainee teacher NQT data request.

Luke Jacobs made this Freedom of Information request to Birmingham Metropolitan College

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Birmingham Metropolitan 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.

Yours faithfully,

Luke Jacobs

Hi Luke,

 

In response to your email requesting information under the Open Government
request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 you specified the
following:

 

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?

 

Can I first of all supply some context to the delivery of Birmingham
Metropolitan College’s Teacher Training programme.

 

Our provision is awarded by Wolverhampton University with whom we have a
franchise agreement and out programme qualifies trainees on the
Certificate in Education Post Compulsory Education or the Professional
Graduate Certificate in Education Post Compulsory Education dependent on
their previous educational attainment.

 

It is designed for those who are already teaching in the post compulsory
education sector or seeking to do so. It is not designed to train teachers
for work within  the mainstream compulsory schooling sectors. Any teachers
on the course who are based in schools have only been based within the
sixth form of those establishments.

 

In response to your first question 14 of 15 trainees last year (15/16
cohort) successfully completed the course.

 

Only one person was employed by a school at the end of the training and in
the sixth form provision.

One person continued to be employed by a university.

One person’s employment status was unknown.

All of the remaining twelve trainees were employees of Birmingham
Metropolitan College

 

None to the best of our knowledge were employed via a supply agency.

 

I hope this information is of use.

 

Kind regards

 

 

Louise Curry
