London Economics were commissioned by the Training and Development Agency for Schools to undertake an assessment of the centrally held Teacher Information Line data to better understand the supply of eligible teachers in maths and science. The work involves the detailed assessment of the TIL data alongside a primary analysis of the Labour Force Survey to understand the degree to which the TIL data is representative of the teaching profession more generally. The work also involves merging several annual Labour Force Surveys and undertaking an econometric analysis to better understand the labour market for those eligible to teach maths and science.
