HC Deb 05 March 1936 vol 309 cc1550-1
50. Mr. EDE

asked the President of the Board of Education what are the qualifications necessary for appointment as a supplementary teacher in an elementary school; how many such teachers there were on the last date for which figures are available; and how many such teachers were appointed for the first time during the latest 12 months for which figures are available


The conditions under which supplementary teachers may be appointed and employed are set out in Schedule II of the Code of Regulations for Elementary Schools, a copy of which I am sending to the hon. Member. The number of supplementary teachers in public elementary schools maintained by local education authorities on the 31st December, 1935, was 5,722. The board have no figures of new appointments, which are not notified to them, but to His Majesty's inspector.
