Secondary Schools Staff Survey

The DCSF has just published its latest Secondary School Curriculum and Staffing Survey (SSCSS). This is a report which has been published every four to six years since 1965, and examines the make-up of the teaching workforce in terms of qualifications and the subjects that they teach.

The survey makes for interesting reading; although the picture is mixed, there appears to be a shortage of appropriately qualified teachers in some subjects, with mathematics being particularly bad ly affected. You can read some of the main findings in the briefing paper, or from this BBC story.
