HC Deb 14 December 1950 vol 482 c204W
121. Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Minister of Education if he is aware that the only teachers who do not know the basis on which their salaries are assessed are the principals and departmental heads in training colleges; and whether he will consider giving a lead to local education authorities by publishing the points system in which a just allocation of grades can be made.

Mr. Tomlinson

The Report of the Committee on Salary Scales for the Teaching Stall of Training Colleges places upon employing bodies the first responsibility for assessing the salaries or scales of salaries of principals having regard to the guidance which is afforded by the scales for other posts under the Report. The salaries so assessed are subject to my agreement. A similar provision is included in the Report of the Burnham Committee on Salary Scales for Teachers in Establishments of Further Education. For salary purposes there is no recognised grade of head of department in Training Colleges.
