HC Deb 26 June 1930 vol 240 cc1354-5W
Duchess of ATHOLL

asked the President of the Board of Education how many teachers, in addition to the average annual output of teachers following two-year training courses for the last four years, will have finished their training by 31st March in each of the years 1931 to 1934; how many of these will be men and how many women, respectively; and how many class teachers and teachers of practical subjects, respectively?


The output, in the summer of 1931, of teachers following two-year courses is expected to exceed the average annual output of the last four years by 738. Of this number 349 are men and 389 are women. The number of women includes 129 teachers of domestic subjects, but it cannot yet be said how many of the remainder will have special qualifications in other practical subjects. Detailed estimates in respect of subsequent years cannot be given until particulars of the admissions to the training colleges next autumn are available.
