HC Deb 12 April 1978 vol 947 c442W
Mr. Bryan Davies

asked the Secretary of State of Education and Science if the results are now available of the survey conducted by her Department and the Universities Council for the Education of Teachers into the destination of those completing courses of initial teacher training in the summer of 1977.

Miss Margaret Jackson

Of those who successfully completed teacher training courses at university departments of education and whose destination was reported as at last October, 77 per cent. had obtained teaching posts in the United Kingdom, 7 per cent. had entered non-teaching employment, and 6 per cent. were unemployed and still seeking teaching posts. Figures for the non-university institutions were 58 per cent., 59 per cent. and 28 per cent., respectively.
