Chemistry Trainee Teacher Numbers Rise

I've belatedly noticed data reported in the last Education in Chemistry, from 5th December - that the government has exceeded its chemistry teacher recruitment targets.

The number training to teach chemistry has risen 35% on the 2010 figure. This is great news. Even better, the calibre of primary and secondary teacher trainees has improved - more now have upper second or better degrees.

Have a look for yourself at the trainee census data on the TDA website.
