Jobs and recruiting analysis

This page contains our ongoing analysis of recruitment activity at mainstream secondary schools, sixth-form colleges and FE colleges in England. It's a new feature still under development, so don't expect everything to work perfectly yet.

Click on the subject areas above to see the most recent positions on which this analysis is based (updated daily).

See below for aggregate statistics and figures to date (updated weekly).

  1. The data are not comprehensive. Not all positions are advertised online and we certainly don't find all of those that are. But we think the sample is large and representative enough to be informative.
  2. We've included most established secondary school subjects as well as a few vocational topics, though by no means the full range of courses available at, say, FE colleges.
  3. We distinguish between different seniority levels, but currently not between full- and part-time postions.
  4. We're continuing to refine the process by which we gather this information, so some variations over time might be due to changes in our methods rather than any real underlying effect. For the same reason, we may sometimes go back over the data and amend it retrospectively. So please accept this for what it is: an open, ongoing experiment rather than a final, pristine data set.
