Mr. Bob Brown
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is his policy on the need for a college for the training of teachers in technical subjects in the Northern Region.
§ Mr. Goronwy Roberts
Our immediate aim is to expand the provision for the training of teachers for further education by making the fullest possible use of the resources of the four existing technical colleges of education. For example, a part-time course has been started this year in Durham by staff of the Huddersfield College with the co-operation of the technical colleges in the Durham area. We are examining what further provision in the Northern Region might be possible.
