Dear Wigan and Leigh 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

Gemma Derbyshire, Wigan and Leigh College

Dear Luke

I am writing with reference to your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Information requested:

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?

Your request for information has now been considered and our response is below:

Firstly, from your most recent complete cohort data, how many teacher trainees successfully completed their training?
According to the data presented to us from UCLan in the February review, we have 100% pass rate across cohorts. 34 in total.

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.
This data breaks down as 35% in FT teaching, 15% in PT teaching and 26% in education but not as a teacher.

Lastly, How many of those same trainees were employed through a supply agency?
The specific information requested is not something that was recorded, therefore we are unable to provide this information. The Act covers any recorded information that is held by a public authority in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and by UK-wide public authorities based in Scotland.
