§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what studies she has made of the Bede College of Education Teacher/Tutor System; where else in England and Wales this system operates; and if she will make a statement.
§ Mr. van Straubenzee
An evalution of this system by the College is nearing completion and the results are expected in a few months. Most university departments of education have an arrangement by which schools supervise students on teaching practice, and one or two colleges of education have a similar system.
