Dear Mr Crowley, 

Thank you for your request for information, which was received on 6
October 2017. Following on from an earlier request about prospective
trainee teachers on pre-ITT SKE courses, you requested updated numbers for
exactly the same information in the same format but covering the full
academic year to 31 July 2017.  I have dealt with your request under the
Freedom of Information Act 2000.

The request you refer to asked “how many prospective trainee teachers were
funded who started pre-ITT SKE courses during that academic year period
broken down by name of SKE course provider, by SKE subject and by size of
SKE course (units or weeks).” It asked for this information to be “broken
down by the prospective trainee teacher's intended initial teacher
training course (core ITT or School Direct (fee), School Direct (salary)
for example) and, if the intended course is a School Direct ITT course,
the name of the School Direct partnership.” A copy of the information is
enclosed in the format you requested.

If you are unhappy with the way your request has been handled, you should
make a complaint to the Department by writing to me within two calendar
months of the date of this letter.  Your complaint will be considered by
an independent review panel, who were not involved in the original
consideration of your request. 

If you are not content with the outcome of your complaint to the
Department, you may then contact the Information Commissioner’s Office.

Dear ACCOUNT, Unmonitored,
FOA Samina Kiddier
Regarding the response to my FOI request, many thanks for compiling this data.
I note that the data contained in "Final SKE FoI Data 2017 0048848.xlsx" has been redacted where numbers are less than 5. This does not match the approach take in equivalent data supplied for earlier requests (for example https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/s...

In order to make a meaningful comparison of these data with earlier publications, could I request an additional and simplified version. I do not need to know about numbers of an individual provider level but an overview of numbers.

Please could I request a summary of how many prospective trainee teachers were funded who started pre-ITT SKE courses during the 2016-17 academic year period broken down by intended ITT Route, by SKE subject and by size of SKE course (units or weeks).

Yours sincerely,

Mark Crowley

Dear Mr Crowley, 

Thank you for your request for information, which was received on 6
November 2017. Following on from a response to the request dated 6 October
2017 about prospective trainee teachers on pre-ITT SKE courses, you
requested information on how many prospective trainee teachers were funded
who started pre-ITT SKE courses during the 2016-17 academic year period
broken down by intended ITT Route, by SKE subject and by size of SKE
course (units or weeks).  I have dealt with your request under the Freedom
of Information Act 2000 (“the Act”).

A copy of the information, which can be disclosed, is enclosed. However,
you will note that some information has been redacted  because the
following exemption apply to this information:

Section 40(2) (personal data) of the Act.  

As this information is statistically significant and may potentially lead
to the identification of individual(s), this information is exempt under
section 40 (personal information) of the Freedom of Information Act
(FOIA), as the information constitutes third party data. Section 40(2)
provides that personal data about third parties is exempt information if
one of the conditions set out in section 40(3) is satisfied.

Under the FOI Act disclosure of this information would breach the fair
processing principle contained in the Data Protection Act (DPA), where it
would be unfair to that person. This exemption is 'absolute' in these
circumstances, which means that it is not necessary for the Department to
run a test to balance the public interest in release against that in
withholding the information.

However, I appreciate this redaction will make comparative analysis
against previous years difficult.  Could you let me know the details of
the analysis you wish to undertake? I will then look to see if we could
complete that analysis here and provide results to you.  If easier, we
could have a phone conversation – my direct line is 0161 600 1343.
