Teachers trained "on the job" in schools are more likely to stay in the profession
Around 208 of 304 starters have completed its school-centred initial teacher training programme (SCITT) since 1998, and 96 per cent are still in the profession.
However, statistics released this week by the Government suggest SCITT-trained teachers are slightly less likely to go into service after training than the national average. Of the 860 completing SCITT or Open University training in 2000, a quarter were not in classrooms the following year, compared to 23 per cent for all students completing teacher-training in England that year.
