Teachers: Yorkshire and the Humber

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 29 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many teachers aged under 60 years left the profession in Yorkshire and the Humber in each of the last 10 years; and if he will make a statement. (192898)

The following table provides the number of qualified teachers who are aged under 60 recorded as being out of service in March 2006, whose last recorded service was in the local authority maintained sector in Yorkshire and Humberside Government office region and England, broken down by the year that they left. The figures exclude teachers that have retired. It is unknown whether they have left service permanently.

The total provided is different to that provided to the hon. Member for Surrey Heath (Michael Gove) on 20 March, Official Report, column 1433W, because the series commences from 1996 not 1997 and excludes the first three months of 2006.

The information provided is from the Database of Teacher Records which is maintained on behalf of the Department for pension administration purposes.
