Dear Hereford Sixth Form 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.
I'm afraid I will not be able to answer these questions fully:
1. we do not provide a full teacher training programme, only placements that last around 6 - 12 weeks from different providers, so we wouldn't be able to provide the data requested;
2. we would not collect data about whether the trainees pass and go on to achieve employment as an NQT;
3. we do not have access to that data about those obtaining work through an agency for the reasons outlined about.
Thanks and best wishes,
