In the September 2013 census there were 2,132 teachers in the teacher induction scheme (2,044 in 2012), of which 1,158 were in primary schools and 974 were in secondary schools.
In 2013, a higher proportion of teachers were able to secure a teaching post following their one year guaranteed probationer post under the Teacher Induction Scheme. This is the result of a reduction in the number of students entering initial teacher education in 2009 and 2010, resulting in fewer post-probationers and probationers available to fill posts in 2011 and 2012. As part of the 2011 budget, local authorities agreed to secure places for all probationers who require one under the teacher induction scheme.
Table 2.4 shows the percentage of post-probationers from recent induction cohorts who were in publicly funded permanent or temporary posts at the time of the next census. The proportion increased from 75 per cent in 2012 to 79 per cent in 2013. Other teachers may be in the independent sector or may have found supply work, but this is not recorded in the census.
