Teacher training routes lead to different outcomes

A new study by the Institute for Fiscal Studies examines the different costs, and likely outcomes, of various routes into teaching.

Although the postgraduate HE route is still the most popular (approximately 40% of trainees each year), school-led approaches such as School Direct (more than 30%) and Teach First (5%) are growing.

The study uses data from the School Workforce Census, an annual record of the school workforce in state-funded schools in England, between 2010 and 2014. This allowed the researchers to track the progress of early career trainees. The key findings from the report included:
