Web-based surveys were used with large samples from each of these groups of early-career teachers. Responses were received from 5,528 teachers. Response rates varied from 16 to 27 per cent of the sample groups, with an average 21 per cent return overall. The accuracy rate is 1.9 per cent overall and 1.8 to 4.7 per cent for the individual survey components, 19 times out of 20. The Transition to Teaching study is made possible by a grant from the Ontario Ministry of Education. This report does not necessarily reflect the policies, views and requirements of the Ministry. The full report of this year's study is available on the College website at oct-oeeo.ca/fsg4kc. medium term. Job vacancies will also increase because of forecast growth in student enrolment beginning next year and accelerating in the years to come. The cumulative surplus of unemployed and underemployed English-language teachers from the earlier oversupply years likely includes a significant num- ber of teachers still available to fill job vacancies. One can anticipate that it will take some years of this rebalancing of new teacher supply and annual teacher demand before future first-year English- language teachers begin to report single-digit unemployment. Nonetheless, year after year of fewer new teachers than job vacancies will gradually lower first-year unemployment rates and lead to earlier full employment for new teach- ers in the future. The picture is much different for French-language program graduates. With about 725 to 850 graduates obtaining Ontario teaching licenses an- nually over the past several years, first- year unemployment is already minimal. With the annual intake falling to about 340 in the years ahead, continued low rates of unemployment for this market segment are assured. With FSL employ- ment rates also in single digits, French- language teacher recruitment should be challenging for many school boards throughout the province. Among the legacies of the teacher surplus years is a sharp rise in the rate of non-renewal of College memberships. Back in 2005, fewer than one in 20 new members failed to renew in the first year after licensing and under one in 10 after five years. The years of increasing early career unemployment saw these loss rates accelerate and are now almost double the rates of a decade ago. PS JOB VACANCIES ARE EXPECTED TO INCREASE BECAUSE OF FORECAST GROWTH IN STUDENT ENROLMENT BEGINNING NEXT YEAR AND ACCELERATING IN THE YEARS TO COME.
