These slides, produced by Sarah Smalley for the All Party Parliamentary Group enquiry into RE teacher supply, graphically illustrate how alarming the prognosis is for RE ITE, not only in terms of trainee numbers but also in the number and distribution of providers that may continue to offer RE.
The APPG on RE is still collecting evidence, which can be sent up until the 14th December.
Evidence can be sent by organisations or individuals. Dr Barbara Wintersgill, who is the professional lead officer for the inquiry, has prepared a more specific request for information from individual teachers. See the RE Council’s Website for full details: http://www.religiouseducationcouncil.org/
