A profile of teachers in England from the 2010 school workforce census

Early analyses of data from the 2010 school workforce census.



Changes to the collection of school workforce data by the Department for Education have resulted in an expansion of the types of analysis that are possible in this area, meaning that questions can now be answered which could not previously.

The DfE published a topic note on school support staff in June 2010 containing detailed analysis and research on this section of the school workforce.

In contrast, this research topic paper looks at information about the teacher workforce, and in particular on new information that can be drawn from the expanded data now available.

This paper presents a broad selection of insights from early analyses of the new school workforce data, making these publicly available and accessible to a non-technical audience in accordance with the government’s transparency agenda.
