HC Deb 15 June 1972 vol 838 c362W
48. Mr. R. C. Mitchell

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what steps she intends to take to ensure that all lecturers and teachers in institutions of higher and further education have some training in teaching methods.

Mr. van Straubenzee

Universities, with which the responsibility rests, have for some time been paying special attention to the training of their staff and a considerable amount of work is going on. So far as concerns other institutions, my right hon. Friend is considering the recommendations of Lord James' committee of inquiry.
