Trainee teacher NQT data request.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, St Brendan's Sixth Form College should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear St Brendan’s 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.

Yours faithfully,

Luke Jacobs

Katie Zavros, St Brendan's Sixth Form College

Dear Luke,

Thank you for your FOI enquiry.

I need to advise you that we are a Sixth Form College not a school. Our teachers need to be qualified to teach at A Level.

In the last academic year (2015-16) we had no NQT's eligible to complete their induction year while employed with us.

There are no NQTs in our current cohort for 2016-17.

We are not able to provide information on the qualification status of any agency workers as they are not our employees. No supply teacher engaged over 2015-16 was to our knowledge an NQT at the point of their temporary engagement.

I trust this answers your FOI query.

Best Regards,
