Zaidi, A., Howat, C. & Caisl, J. (2016). Initial Teacher Education Provision in FE. Second year report. [Londres] : The Education and Training Foundation.




Initial teacher education (ITE) presents a diverse picture in the FE sector, and data has always been difficult to collate.  Training takes places in universities, FE Colleges, and independent training providers, and is accredited by awarding organisations and universities in different combinations.

Findings from the latest report include:

  • The overwhelming majority of ITE providers are rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted.
  • Those undertaking ITE are on average 37 years old, reflecting a choice to move into FE as a second career.  They are more likely to be female than male and 16 per cent come from ethnic minorities, a higher proportion than in the general UK workforce.
  • Nearly 80% of learners undertaking diplomas or PGCE/Cert Ed courses in 2013/14 were previously qualified to Level 4 or above. Prior attainment was particularly high in ITE programmes delivered by HEIs, where 90% were qualified to level 4 or above. This had not changed from 2012/13.
  • 59% of those completing their training ended up securing a teaching role in FE within a year: this is however less than the 66% in the previous report.
  • Looking at first roles employed as teachers, the gender pay difference between men and women teachers appears to have decreased significantly. In 2013/14, women earned on average £830 less than male teachers, which is far less than the difference of £2,340 in 2012/13.
