Mr. Owen

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many full-time officers and teachers are employed in the field of adult education excluding residential colleges.

Mr. Chataway

The number of fulltime tutors employed by responsible bodies in 1963–64 with the aid of grant from my Department was 311. I have no information about officers other than teachers.

Mr. Chataway

There are 28 short-term residential colleges or centres maintained or assisted by local education authorities and five long-term colleges which receive grant from my Department. Details of the courses held in 1962–63, and the numbers of students attending them, are given in the table below.

No information is available about costs at the short-term colleges and centres; at the long-term colleges the average cost per student in 1962–63 was £445.
