Trainee teacher NQT data request.

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

Dear Darlington 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

Becky Irwin, Darlington College


Thanks for your email.

To assist you further, can I please clarify something with you?

As we are a Further Education College, we don't have NQT's as such, as I believe they are for secondary and primary education? We only have PGCE trainees on placement.

Have you intended to send this request to an FE College?

Kind Regards
