HC Deb 09 July 1959 vol 608 cc144-5W
Mr. J. Johnson

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what is the number of teacher training establishments in Kenya, and the number of students therein; and what wages are paid to teachers upon qualification.

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

At the 30th June, 1958, there were 45 teacher-training establishments in Kenya (42 African and 3 Asian), with a total of 3,814 students (3,545 Africans and 269 Asians). Wages paid on entry into the teaching service after qualification in the teacher training colleges depend upon the grade into which the teacher is appointed, and this in turn depends upon the academic qualifications which the teacher held on entering these colleges. I am asking the Governor for details and will write to the hon. Member.
