HC Deb 17 March 1891 vol 351 cc1221-2
MR. POWELL (Wigan)

I beg to ask the Vice President of the Committee of Council on Education whether his attention has been called to the prospectus of the Cardiff Day Training College, stating that— In respect of the subjects in which normal students receive instruction in common with other students of the college, the Education Department accepts the results of the sessional examination conducted by the professors of the college as qualifying for a certificate of merit; and whether these examinations are held by the Department as equivalent to the independent and uniform examination of the Department for the same purpose?


The Education Department recognise in day training colleges examinations by the examiners of the college, usually the college professors, in certain subjects, but the papers will be sent to the Department, and the marks will be re-I assessed, so as to bring all students as nearly as possible into line. It may eventually be necessary to ask the colleges to appoint outside examiners, and also to submit the papers that are set to the Inspector of the district; but before laying down any rule, it has been thought expedient to wait for the experience of the first examinations in June and December.

Forward to
