HC Deb 19 January 1967 vol 739 cc110-1W
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.
