Mr. Nicholas Winterton
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many teacher training institutions have facilities for teaching design and technology; and what is the total number of places available in these subjects.
In September 1983, 17 institutions in England are expected to be admitting up to 235 students to one-year initial training courses in craft design and technology, and up to 315 students to bachelor of education and comparable courses in that subject. Twenty-two institutions, including seven of those that offer initial training in CDT, are offering in-service or retraining courses in 1983–84. In excess of 100 places will be available on retraining courses.
