HC Deb 13 January 1913 vol 46 c1692W

asked the Chief Secretary what are the new regulations of the Board of National Education for the promotion of assistant teachers; when did they come into force; and how many have been already promoted under them?


Under Rule 103 (c) of the Code assistant teachers appointed on or after the 1st April, 1900, are debarred from promotion beyond the third grade unless in exceptional circumstances and by special order of the Commissioners of National Education. The Commissioners have made no change in the Regulation, but they have always exercised the powers which they possess under the existing rules in suitable cases, and since August last they have promoted twenty-three assistants to the second grade, and other cases are under consideration.
