HC Deb 03 March 1966 vol 725 cc336-7W
Sir E. Boyle

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many technical colleges are providing facilities for teacher training courses; and how many students are attending such courses.

Mr. Prentice

Two of the annexes brought into use at colleges of education last September involve the use of facilities in establishments for further education: as these annexes are counted as part of the parent college of education it is not possible to give separate student numbers for them. Eight colleges of education are known to be considering the setting up of annexes or outposts involving similar use of further education establishments. Other colleges of education are using facilities of further education establishments on a smaller scale not amounting to the organisation of an annexe: my Department has no central record of arrangements of this kind.
