Dear Dearne Valley 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.
Further to the Freedom of Information Request below, the most recent
Teacher Education programme run by Dearne Valley College was the Award in
Education and Training, which would not be considered as a full teaching
training programme as it was a short programme which ran for the first
part of this academic year only.
The last programme DVC ran which could be classified as a teacher training
programme of any kind, was the Diploma in Education and Training, for
which the last cohort of 8 learners completed in February 2016. All 8 of
these learners were in already in employment in a teaching capacity within
further education colleges or private training providers, as this was a
requirement of the programme. Therefore, none of these would have been
classified as NQT’s. As far as we were aware, none of these learners
were employed by an agency.
I do hope that this provides you with the information you require, if not,
please do not hesitate to contact me.
