Response 25-01-2016

Up until 2015/16 all student placements have been through the SPS system for primary and secondary student. With the introduction of DLITE 10 primary placements will be made manually this year.

Figures for percentage of schools offering a placement are only available for 2015/16.

1. For primary - 27 out of the 45 primary schools have students. However, some who do not have a student do have a probationer and are small schools.

2. For secondary - 7 out of 8 schools have student placements.
