Information requested

You asked for any estimates or analysis of the number of Scottish students or students who study in Scotland who subsequently moved to England to work for the Teach First programme.

We do not hold any estimate of students who study in Scotland and subsequently move to England to work for the Teach First programme. However, in 2017, Teach First issued a press release which stated that since 2012, 392 of Teach First participants had listed their first degree as having taken place in Scotland. If you require more up-to-date figures then I suggest that you contact:
