§ Mr. Mitchison
asked the Minister of Education at what colleges or other institutions and at what time intensive courses will soon be held to enable ex-Servicemen with ordinary national certificates, to obtain higher national certificates in electrical engineering; and what arrangements have been made to enable such men to obtain grants to assist them in attending such courses.
§ Miss Wilkinson:
Intensive courses for Higher National Certificates in Electrical Engineering and in other subjects will be available for ex-Servicemen at selected Technical Colleges throughout the country. Grants will be made under the Further Education and Training Scheme. Arrangements have already been made for a few courses to begin in September, and at least one in June. Other centres will be utilised as the need develops and groups of students become available. My right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour and I are considering arrangements for dealing with applications from individual students so that they can be directed to the most convenient centre
