The graph gives information about the proportion of male and female teachers in six varying kinds of educational institutions in the UK in 2010.

Women held a particularly larger share of teaching for young children. While teaching for older children and young adults were gradually predominated by men.

Teaching at pre-school was women-dominated. Over 95 percent of women working in nursery schools, meanwhile men only made up nearly 5 percent. That was similarly one-sided in teaching at primary school. For example, women outnumbered men [nearly 95 percent], men were roughly 10 percent.

The range of educational setting from secondary school to private training institutions was equal gender distribution. Men were represented 50% averagely, either were women. Teaching at university for young adults was predominated by men, where there were over twice as many male lecturers as female lectures.

Women held a particularly larger share of teaching for young children. While teaching for older children and young adults was were gradually (Wrong word. "Gradual" is used in a time-related context.) predominated by men.

Teaching at pre-school was women-dominated. (repetitious. You already made this point. ) Over 95 percent of women working in nursery schools, meanwhile men only made up nearly 5 percent. (That is not a grammatical sentence. Besides, there are only two genders - men and women. If women are 95%, it is not very informative to give the value of 5% for men! If women are 95% then men are exactly 5%.) That was similarly one-sided in teaching at primary school. For example, women outnumbered men [nearly 95 percent], men were roughly 10 percent. (If women were 95%, how could men be 10%?? The total percentage of men + woman must be 100%. It is conceivable for the total to be less than 100%. Maybe some schools use gender-neutral robots as teachers.)

The range of educational setting from secondary school to private training institutions was equal gender distribution. (Incorrect. According to the chart, only "college" had the same number of men and women teachers.) Men were represented 50% averagely, (That is not a good English word) either were women. Teaching at university for young adults was predominated by men, where there were over twice as many male lecturers as female lectures.(wrong word).

The bar chart plots the percentage of men and women teachers by six educational levels in the UK in 2010. These ranged from pre-school to university and included both public and private institutions.

Overall, women dominated the teaching profession in pre-school and primary school, whereas the vast majority of teaching staff at the university level were men. For the other three levels, which were above primary school, but below university, the proportions were more equitable.

In detail, the largest gender gap was for nursery school, where 95% of the teachers were female, and this was very closely followed by primary school, with over 90%. The proportions shifted for the next level, secondary school, but women still claimed a slight majority, about 54%. Colleges were unique among these six educational categories in that they employed men and women in numbers to obtain equal representation. That was in distinct contrast to university with a plurality of male lecturers, seven in ten of their faculty being male. The last category, private institutions, had a small bias toward men. They had about the same distribution as secondary schools, but with the genders reversed.
