This project aimed to compare outcomes for pupils in disadvantaged schools taught by NQT-level teachers trained in three different routes.
Grant: £868,837

Primary schools in disadvantaged areas with vacancies can recruit newly qualified teachers (NQTs) through a number of routes. Each has different costs and benefits associated with it. This study aimed to compare the outcomes for pupils taught by NQTs from different training routes. These were university-based routes such as PGCE, school-routes such as Schools Direct, and the Teach First programme.
