  • Although these figures look good on the face of things, it would be better to see a more informative comparative year an year analysis of them, i.e. how many total trainees there were at each firm year on year, rather than blindly taking it as writ that the figures are an improvement on previous years just by reference to percentages.

    Given the number of hopefuls out there retention rates aren't everything to them if the total number of trainees ihas dropped to match reduced demand.

  • I agree with Ronald in theory but I think that his comment is premature. The March 2011 NQs started as trainees in March 2009; and therefore were recruited at some point in 2007. Is this not too soon to be drawing conclusions from the numbers of those qualifying?
