    Can anyone point me in the direction of suitable statistics please that I could quote in a PGCE assignment? It's just to back up a statement that primary teaching is a predominantly female profession.
    Thanks!

    Thank you Greta. I could quote the figures from the schools I have been in (no men at all in one), but rather wanted a reliable national figure to quote.

    It's not difficult. I used that stat in my dissertation. Took me about 2 minutes to find.

    At first I thought Greta was just being mean, but actually I have found this figure with a quick google search. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-14748273
     
  7. Hi Everybody,
    I am also researching for my studies (BA top up degree).
    I understand what you mean by doing my own research. However, I have read numerous online articles which refer to TDA statistics which I cannot find. This is possibly because the TDA is no more. I have been looking at the Dept. Ed website all morning and cannot find these stats. My University do not want online articles or newspaper reports, they want journals, books and if possible, Government papers etc.
    I doubt the author of this post (and I) are requesting your research - just a gentle nudge (signpost) in the right direction?
    Thanks for reading my reply.
    Mr T.
