§ 87. Mr. K. Lindsay
asked the Minister of Education whether his attention has been called to an advertisement inserted on behalf of the Cornwall Education Committee in the "Teachers World" of 19th March, the effect of which is to discriminate against Emergency Training College teachers; and what action he proposes to take.
§ Mr. Hardman
Yes, Sir. I understand that the authority consider that previous teaching experience is desirable in the posts in question and that the authority regard the posts as equally ill-suited to newly qualified teachers from other training colleges. The reason why emergency trained teachers alone were mentioned is that candidates from other training colleges would not be available at this time of year. I am advising the authority to avoid giving the appearance in any future advertisements of discriminating against emergency trained teachers.
