Dear South 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.

Yours faithfully,

Luke Jacobs

Freedom Of Information, South Downs College

Dear Mr Jacobs

Thank you for your enquiry under Freedom of Information.

We currently have 8 learners who are on the final year of the 2 year part time PGCE/CERT ED Teacher Training Qualification. We run this as a franchise through Portsmouth University. Whilst the course is not due to finish until June, all 8 are expected to complete.

None of our learners are regarded as NQT. They are already employed as a teacher within their organisation and complete their QTS through us.

The NQT model is specifically for schools, we do not deal with NQT status. Staff are either qualified upon employment, or, they complete their training with us part time alongside their employment.

Should you have any further queries, please e-mail: [email address]
