HC Deb 03 November 1972 vol 845 c17W
Mr. Deakins

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what pre-service training and in-service training, respectively, is considered necessary for teachers in all institutions of higher education.

Mrs. Thatcher

There is no statutory training requirement for teachers in higher education education institutions. It is for the institution concerned to determine in each case what training a teacher should have, whether pre-service, on appointment or during service, in the light of his qualifications and experience and of the nature of his teaching duties.
