§ Mr. Chris Patten
My right hon. Friend has received two letters on criteria which apply only to the training of primary teachers through undergraduate courses. He has also received letters on criteria which apply equally to other courses of initial teacher training. The criteria set out 255W in the annex to circular 3/84 are based on the requirements published in the White Paper "Teaching Quality" (Cmnd. 8836) and recommendations made to my right hon. Friends the Secretaries of State for Education and Science and for Wales by the Advisory Committee on the Supply and Education of Teachers.
