HC Deb 28 March 1945 vol 409 cc1406-7W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Minister of Education in what class of schools and for what duties he proposes to use the new category of unqualified teachers and temporary teachers; and whether they will be employed as were uncertificated teachers in the past in performing the same duties as qualified teachers but at a smaller remuneration.

Mr. Butler

Under the draft Regulations for Primary and Secondary Schools (excluding Special Schools), as from 1st April, 1945, all regular teachers in maintained schools, certain assisted schools, and direct-grant schools other than grammar schools, must be either qualified teachers or temporary teachers, except that existing teachers in service before that date and not eligible for qualified status may continue to be employed as unqualified teacher. It rests with the school authorities to allocate the duties to be performed by individual teachers on the school staff.
