The bar chart illustrates the proportion of teachers following gender in 6 types of educational institutions in the UK in 2010.
Overrall, the percentage of female teachers was higher than male in Nursery School and Primary School while the figure for those who taught in Secondary School and upper education level gradual declined. Therefore, woman was by far the most common in lower level of education where taught for children.
Woman dominated the teaching proffession in Nursery School and Primary School above 95% and 90%. At Secondary and upper Secondary level this pattern was less pronounced, where there were nearly equal proportions of male and female teachers.
On the other hand, man outnumbered woman at teaching in high-level education. For example, in the university, the percentage of male teachers was twice that for female teachers.
