Teachers

Data on pre-school, primary and total teachers along with associated pupil teacher ratios for 2010, 2011 and 2012 have been revised to remove teachers who were double counted as a result of working in both sectors. Therefore these figures have been superseded, please use revised figures in the 2013 publication.
