HC Deb 24 July 1967 vol 751 cc57-8W
Mr. Wellbeloved

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what further steps he is taking to increase the provision of teacher training facilities for older students.

Mr. Crosland

I sent a letter on 19th July to all colleges and departments of education and local education authorities asking them to do all they can to in- crease still further the recruitment of older students who after training will have so valuable a part to play in the schools. I have asked all colleges and authorities in particular to consider the possibility of setting up more college outposts for mature students.
