star this property answer text <p>The Department is committed to ensuring that teaching remains an attractive profession and that graduates can access high quality teacher training across all subjects. That’s why in January the Department launched the Teacher Recruitment and Retention Strategy. Designed collaboratively with the sector, the centrepiece of the strategy is the Early Career Framework (ECF) which will underpin a fully-funded, two-year support package for new teachers, providing them with the early career support enjoyed by other top professionals.</p><p> </p><p>The Government offers student finance for all tuition fee funded citizenship teacher training courses, including a tuition fee loan which means that trainee teachers do not need to pay fees upfront. Citizenship trainee teachers can also apply for a maintenance loan to support their living costs. Those considering citizenship Initial Teacher Training (ITT) are eligible for one to one support from Teacher Training Advisers, to guide them through their journey into teaching. They can access this support by registering with Get into Teaching.</p><p> </p><p>For some subjects, the Department provide bursaries to incentivise applications. The Department has had to take difficult decisions about where to focus this bursaries budget. As schools enter more pupils for English Baccalaureate (EBacc) subjects, it is expected that there will be more demand for specialist teachers in these subjects. The Department has therefore focused the bursaries budget on EBacc subjects to secure as many applicants as possible in the subjects where schools are likely to devote the most teaching time.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The annual Initial Teacher Training (ITT) census provides data on the number of trainee teachers recruited each year in which citizenship trainees are included in the “Other” subject category.</p><p>Analysis of the underlying data shows that in the academic year 2018-19, 37 postgraduate trainees began training in citizenship.[1][2] Of the 385 trainees included in the “Other” subject category, 146 trainees do not belong to any of the available subject categories and therefore it is not known if any of these are citizenship trainees.</p><p> </p><p>The Department does not collect data on the subject options provided in schools therefore entries into GCSE citizenship by schools included in Key Stage 4 performance tables has been provided instead. In 2018, 492 schools included in Key Stage 4 performance tables had pupils with entries into GCSE Citizenship. [3][4][5] This accounts for 9.3% of schools included in Key Stage 4 performance tables for that year.</p><p> </p><p>Citizenship is an important part of the national curriculum at Key Stage 3 and 4. We want all children to leave school with the knowledge, skills, and values that will prepare them to be citizens in modern Britain. Schools have freedom to decide how they wish to teach the citizenship curriculum to meet the needs of all their pupils.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>[1] Figures for 2018/19 are provisional and subject to change.</p><p>[2] Data was extracted on 19 November 2018.</p><p>[3] Includes state funded and independent schools, excludes alternative provision and pupil referral units. School performance tables includes schools based on their status as of 12 September the previous year.</p><p>[4] Only entries by pupils at the end of Key Stage 4 at schools which were published Key Stage 4 performance tables are included and no discounting has been applied so these totals may differ from those reported in our statistical release.</p><p>[5] In 2018, the reformed 9-1 GCSE in Citizenship counted in performance tables for the first time, replacing the unreformed A*-G qualification in the same subject. Once a reformed qualification is included in performance tables, the unreformed qualification no longer counts, regardless of when it was entered.</p><p> </p>
