HC Deb 08 February 1951 vol 483 c221W
33. Mr. Gammans

asked the Minister of Education how many male teachers have been recruited since 1945 under the Emergency Scheme or by any other means; and how many of them have subsequently resigned.

Mr. Tomlinson

Between 1945 and August, 1950, 22,048 men were trained under the Emergency Training Scheme: and in the same period some 13,500 trained men teachers entered the profession from other forms of training. I cannot readily say how many of these particular teachers have since resigned, but the number of men teachers leaving the profession for reasons other than health or age has in recent years been somewhat under 1,000 each year out of a total of some 95,000 in service.
