Mr. Brady: To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills, pursuant to her written answer of 31 October 2001, Official Report, column 714W, how many full-time equivalent teachers there were without qualified teacher status in maintained schools in each of the last five years, broken down by (a) those on the graduate teacher programme, (b) those on the registered teacher programme, (c) those on the licensed teacher programme, (d) those on the overseas trained teacher scheme, (e) instructors and (f) other teachers without QTS. 
Mr. Timms [holding answer 5 November 2001]: The number of teachers on each of the programmes specified are not identified separately. Numbers of teachers without qualified teacher status (QTS) working in the maintained schools sector in England between January 1997 and January 2001 were as follows:
|Teachers on routes to QTS(14)||460||570||470||580||1,280|
|Instructors and other teachers without QTS(15)||2,480||2,640||3,070||3,240||4,340|
(14) Those on the graduate teacher programme, registered teacher programme, licensed teacher scheme and overseas trained teacher scheme
(15) Includes overseas-trained teachers employed on contracts of at least one month and not currently seeking QTS.
Totals may not equal the sum of their component parts due to rounding. All figures have been rounded to the nearest 10.
When deciding whether to employ an instructor without QTS, headteachers take into account the fact that they can often bring valuable skills and experience to the classroom, particularly in subjects that have a high practical content. Instructors also include teachers without qualifications obtained overseas who are not currently seeking QTS.
