§ 11. Mr. Mulley
asked the Minister of Education if she will award grants for the full three years to students of those training colleges where three-year courses for training teachers are provided; how many colleges provide only three-year courses; how many additional grants would be involved; and at what annual cost.
§ Miss Horsbrugh
There are three teacher training colleges which provide a three-year course in association with the Froebel Foundation and at which my Department's grants are available only for the last two years of the course. I cannot extend my grants at these colleges to three years at a time when other courses of general training remain at two years. Additional grants to some 190 students each year would be involved at an annual cost of about £55,000.
