Trainee teacher NQT data request.

The request was successful.

Dear Strode 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 Jacob

Hello Luke,


Thank you for your request for information regarding Teacher Trainee NQT
data under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.  We are able to provide
the following information for you which has been provided by the teacher
responsible for delivering the course:


I have 6 students on each course, Level 4 and 5, 12 in total. They are all
due to complete by end of June. All have teaching hours this year, mostly
in the College, one in a secondary school and one with a private training
provider and one in the NHS.


None of them are employed through an agency, although 2 of last year's
Level 4 students were employed through an agency with Weston College.



We hope this answer’s your query.  If you have any questions regarding
this reply we will regard this as a new request under the FOI Act. 


Kind regards

Angela Leavens
