Teachers: Standards

Volume 472: debated on Monday 25 February 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many newly qualified teachers have failed their induction period and remained in teaching in the latest period for which figures are available. (188373)

The General Teaching Council for England (GTCE) received notification of 23 newly qualified teachers that failed their induction between 1 September 2006 and 31 of August 2007. As the GTCE does not have any active employment details recorded for these teachers there is no evidence that they currently work as a qualified teacher in a maintained school or non-maintained special school in England. The GTCE do not regulate independent schools.
