Maths tar­get missed

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

MORE than half of the tar­get num­ber of train­ing places for maths teachers are empty, new fig­ures have re­vealed.

There are 1,126 peo­ple in Scot­land cur­rently study­ing to be­come sec­ondary school teachers — 70% of the over­all in­take tar­get set by the Scottish Fund­ing Coun­cil (SFC) for 2017-18.

The SFC set the goal of re­cruit­ing 237 stu­dent maths teachers, but the fig­ures show there are only 112 such stu­dents, 47% of the tar­get num­ber.
