§ Mr. Dormand
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she will seek powers in the near future to review the Bachelor of Education courses now being conducted in the universities.
§ Mr. van Straubenzee
No. The status of degrees, including the Bachelor of Education, and the content of courses leading to them are matters for the awarding university. This is, however, a topic relevant to the inquiry which I propose to arrange into the training of teachers.
