Mr. van Straubenzee

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the percentage of school-leavers, at the latest available date, who go to universities, colleges of education, technical colleges for advanced courses, and technical colleges for non-advanced courses, respectively.

Mr. Gordon Walker:

Of school leavers in the year 1965–66, 5.5 per cent. went into universities, 3.1 per cent. to colleges of education, 1.1 per cent. to full-time (and sandwich) degree and HND/HNC courses in further education establishments, and 8.1 per cent. to other full-time and sandwich courses at further education establishments. Most of the latter courses were non-advanced.
