Since 2002, the College has been surveying teachers in their first years to see what kinds of jobs they are getting and how they are settling into the profession. Unemployment is up sharply in 2010 with many new English-language teachers unable to find even daily supply teaching. New French-language teachers have better job outcomes than English-language teachers but two years of data show clearly that they, too, are now experiencing a more challenging job market.
