Teacher Workforce Statistics

These statistical releases contain information on teacher numbers and pupil:teacher ratios for Northern Ireland over time, as well as some analysis by Education and Library Board and school management type.  Comparative figures for England are also included.

It is proposed that the statistical release for Teacher Workforce Statistics for 2014/15 will be split into two separate releases. The first release will cover teacher numbers and pupil: teacher ratios and the second will cover teacher vacancies, teacher substitution and teacher sickness absence. This change is being implemented to make it clear to users which statistics are National Statistics and which are Official Statistics. Before doing so we would be keen to gauge how this would impact upon users, and would be grateful if you could complete the following questionnaire. This questionnaire will be open until 27th February 2015.
