HC Deb 20 January 1964 vol 687 c83W
16. Mr. Shinwell

asked the Minister of Labour what facilities are available in the area covered by the Easington parliamentary division to enable unemployed school leavers to undergo training; and what remuneration is provided for each person during the period of training.

Mr. Godber

Boys from Easington can travel to Tursdale G.T.C. where first-year apprenticeship classes are being held for boys not yet taken on by employers; they are paid the agreed wage for first-year apprentices in the engineering industry. There are 24 pre-employment courses at Easington Technical College. The local education authority operates a scheme through which maintenance allowances are payable to enable young people to attend these courses without hardship.
