To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Hill of Oareford on 16 March (WA 124), for each year between 2006 and 2011, how many trainees from (1) graduate teacher programmes, (2) higher education institutions, and (3) school-centred initial teacher training programmes, dropped out of their initial teacher training course.
The number of initial teacher training (ITT) trainees who leave their course at any point within their training is not collected centrally.
Complete data are collected for the number of trainees in England who leave their course during their final year. The number of initial teacher training (ITT) trainees who left (1) the graduate teacher programme (GTP), (2) higher education institutions (HEI) and (3) school-centred initial teacher training (SCITT) before the end of their course during their final year in England are presented in Table A. The number of trainees who attained qualified teacher status (QTS) and had other outcomes to the final year of their course in each year are also provided.
Figures for academic years 2005-06 to 2009-10 are provided and represent the latest available information. Figures for 2010-11 are not yet available.
