Trainee retention: March 2011 results in
11 March 2011
The latest round of trainee retention is over, and retention rates have continued to rise - hitting an impressive overall average of 86%. The full numbers are as follows:
Overall, it looks like a pretty good effort from almost everyone involved. Congratulations to those at the top of the table. But boo to those at the bottom. When previously asked, Bircham Dyson Bell declined the opportunity
to comment. Still, at least Hogan Lovells
was able to improve a (tiny) bit on earlier predictions of a bonfire of the trainees
Well done in particular to Reed Smith
- trapped on an ugly 69% last year - which has recovered strongly to deliver an excellent 94%. Sadly, it comes six months too late for those who were flung out last time round
So, how do these results compare to previous years? RoF Scientists have thrown together this chart which shows the continuing improving trend.
||Trainee retention over the past four seasons |
From the nadir of June 2009 when overall retention slumped to a miserable 57% (in part thanks to shocking performances
from miserly Scottish firms), it's been onward and upward, with
retention rates increasing with every season.
