Nine out of ten new teachers positive about their training
In the last academic year, 23,100 newly qualified teachers joined the teacher workforce and, in a survey, ninety-one per cent said that they were confident their training has equipped them well for the classroom.
School Standards Minister Nick Gibb: “It has never been a better time to join the teaching profession. This survey demonstrates high levels of satisfaction with teacher training. Despite the challenges of recruiting graduates in a strong economy with fierce competition for graduates in other professions and industries, last year we recruited over 32,000 trainee teachers, up 3% from the previous year. We have recently announced a 3.5% pay rise for teachers in the early part of their careers, and there are ample opportunities for promotion.”
Last year 32,710 trainee teachers were recruited – up by 815 (three per cent) on the previous year. What’s more, 98.7 per cent of this new generation of teachers have a degree or higher, which has risen by 4.4 percentage points since 2010, and nearly one in five trainees in 2018 has a first-class degree.Read more
