Jersey Graduate Teacher Training Programme (FOI)
Jersey Graduate Teacher Training Programme (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 13 February 2023.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
Please could you provide, for each year it has been running, how many teachers started the Jersey Graduate Teacher Training Programme in that year, how many completed the programme in that year and the number of each programme year still known to be teaching within Jersey?
Due to low numbers, the Department has determined that to provide a table showing the number of starters in the Jersey Graduate Teacher Training Programme (JGTTP) and the number completing the programme for each year that it has been running would likely breach the privacy of individuals and therefore, Article 25 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) 2011 Law has been applied.
Teachers who complete the Jersey Graduate Teacher Training Programme must also complete the Early Career Teacher (ECT) Induction, previously known as Newly Qualified Teachers (NQT) Induction, in order to confirm their qualified teacher status. At this point they are fully qualified.
The table below represents the number of teachers who completed the JGTTP and achieved NQT/ECT status and who are now known to be employed in Jersey schools this academic year. Please note that some may be employed by independent schools and therefore may not be included in this table. Where numbers are small, disclosure control has been applied to protect the privacy of individuals and numbers fewer than five are represented as ‘<5’.
Through recent analysis of our data we know that our current retention rate of JGTTP teachers within Jersey is 74%.
Article 25 - Personal information
(1) Information is absolutely exempt information if it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018.
(2) Information is absolutely exempt information if –
(a) it constitutes personal data of which the applicant is not the data subject as defined in the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018; and
(b) its supply to a member of the public would contravene any of the data protection principles, as defined in that Law.
3) In determining for the purposes of this Article whether the lawfulness principle in Article 8(1)(a) of the Data Protection (Jersey) Law 2018 would be contravened by the disclosure of information, paragraph 5(1) of Schedule 2 to that Law (legitimate interests) is to be read as if sub-paragraph (b) (which disapplies the provision where the controller is a public authority) were omitted.
