§ Mr. David Howell
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what representations she has received from teaching staff at colleges of technology and other institutions concerning the operations of the Technical Education Council, and, in particular, recent changes in its procedures involving an extra reporting and assessment work load on lecturers and staff.
§ Mr. Oakes
My right hon. Friend has received representations about various aspects of the Council's work from a small number of individual teachers, from organisations representing specialist groups of teaching staff, and from other interested bodies. The National Association of Teachers in Further and Higher Education discussed the question of an extra workload on lecturers and staff with my right hon. Friend on 2nd November 1977.
