Survey of Teacher Numbers and Teacher Vacancies – 18th January 2007.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the 554 schools that took the time to complete the survey in September 2006. This response represents a 96% rate
which is very impressive; however we are always striving for better and would like to achieve 100% coverage.

To help us achieve this I would like to explain a little about the importance of this survey. Each term we ask for teacher workforce data from schools which provides information
on vacancy and turnover rates by phase, by subject (for secondary schools), by individual district and for the County as a whole.
The data helps us identify which schools and areas are experiencing problems in recruiting and retaining teachers. This allows us to help plan strategies and initiatives which
are aimed at helping schools in the recruitment of teachers and other staff. With tight budgets it is important that we target our limited resources at the schools and areas that
most need them in terms of recruitment and retention issues. The data is also used to inform national bodies such as the DfES and TDA of the situation in Essex, and for
comparison purposes with neighbouring Authorities. Schools may also use the data to compare their situation with other schools in their district and across the County as a

                                                               Notes for Completion 
To be completed by ALL schools. When asked for a „Number‟ a „Head Count‟ is required, so all such answers will be whole numbers.

When asked for an „FTE‟ (Full Time Equivalent) it is “how much time does the member of staff work?” expressed in full time units. For example a part time
employee that worked for two days a week would have an FTE of 0.4 and a Full Time employee would have an FTE of 1. So in boxes asking for an FTE
decimal numbers (up to two decimal places) are usual.

Table 1 - This is the Schools staffing complement as if fully staffed.
Please show this figure as an FTE. Include Heads, Deputies, Assistant Heads and any vacancies.

Table 2 - Record all qualified teacher posts, of one term or more, that are vacant or temporarily filled, at the start of the Spring Term 2007.
Count posts that are: not covered, or covered by supply/other teaching staff, or covered by a teacher on a contract of three terms or less
Include:   posts the school has tried to fill but were not filled by 18th January 2007
           posts where an appointment had been made but was not in post at 18th January 2007
Exclude: posts not becoming vacant until after 18th January 2007, e.g. a teacher has resigned but is serving notice
           posts that were filled by somebody on a contract of more than three terms

 This Box is important as it indicates to the DfES if your vacancy fully meets their definition.  The post has to be completely vacant, not being covered at all
and the post has to have been advertised and is still intending to recruit. If so please place a “Y” in this column.
                                                   PLEASE REFER TO SURVEY CODES FOR COMPLETION

Table 3 - Record the TOTAL numbers of support staff and their FTE, then how many of those are Higher Level Teaching Assistants and how many are Cover
Supervisors. Also record the TOTAL number of agency staff.

Table 4 - Record Trainees & Instructors without QTS on a contract of one month or more.
Exclude: Students on teaching practice and all support staff including those providing cover supervision or carry out specific work without a teacher present.

Table 5 - Record all Teacher Leavers. Please do NOT enter supply or agency staff as leavers. To be completed by ALL schools.
                                                   PLEASE REFER TO SURVEY CODES FOR COMPLETION
