I would be grateful if readers of this blog could alert those that either provide ITT places or are seeking to do so in 2019 to the following.
In the DfE’s Requesting initial teacher training places for 2019 to 2020 document issued yesterday https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/initial-teacher-training-itt-requesting-places-2019-to-2020 There is mention of:
.. a realistic assessment of employment need in the local area in submissions (Section 3, page 6)
TeachVac is able to offer providers an independent set of figures showing the number of vacancies advertised in Jan – Dec 2017 and from Jan – Jun 2018 in a range of secondary subjects and for primary teacher posts. There is a small fee providing this information. TeachVac will also add some summary information about the national vacancy situation at the end of 2017. The information provided can be used to justify data include din submissions to the DfE
TeachVac’s normal turnaround for this service would be three working days from receipt of both an official order and details of the secondary subjects needed, whether primary teacher vacancies are required, and local authority areas to be covered. A one working day turnaround is available for an extra fee.
TeachVac can offer the following list of secondary subjects for which data is readily available:
PE, Art, History, Languages, Mathematics, All sciences, Music, Geography, English, Computing /IT, D&T, Business Studies as well as primary teaching vacancies.
Other secondary subjects on the DfE may well be available – if you would like data on these, please ask about the specific the subject required.
For many providers the costs are likely to be £55 + VAT, but larger providers requiring more data, a provider could pay around £110 + VAT. This is made up as:
Up to 5 subjects across up to 5 LEA’s – £55 + VAT (this is the minimum cost)
If you need more subjects / local authorities then TeachVac will charge £28 + VAT for each group of up to 10 subject-LEA’s (1 subject in 10 LEA’s or 2 subjects in 5 LEA’s etc).
Expedite fee (1 day turn around) – £85 + VAT
Sub division of science into Combined / Physics / Chemistry / Biology specialisms as requested in the job adverts – £11 + VAT per LEA. This service is also available on request for design and technology and modern languages for an extra fee.
Those providers who recommend TeachVac to their trainees and or registered schools are entitled to a 10% discount on these costs.
How to proceed:
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of who you are, a list of subjects, a list of LEA’s, any special requirements and whether you recommend TeachVac to your trainees and or registered schools.
TeachVac will email back a total cost and action the request upon receipt of an official order / order number.
TeachVac is a totally free national vacancy service to schools and teachers.
