HC Deb 30 January 1947 vol 432 c252W
96. Mr. Pickthorn

asked the Minister of Education what training facilities are available to uncertified teachers and in what way these differ from those available to new entrants into the teaching profession.

Miss Wilkinson

The arrangements under which uncertificated teachers with not less than five years' service may be admitted to a special one-year course of training are set out in Circular 114, a copy of which I am sending to the hon. Member. It is hoped to make a start with these courses in the autumn of this year. Uncertificated teachers may also apply for admission to the normal two-year course of training, and for those with less than five years' teaching service this course is still considered appropriate.
