HC Deb 23 January 1987 vol 108 c743W
Mr. Andrew F. Bennett

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what action his Department takes to improve the training and professional skills of chief education officers and education officers in local education authorities; and what is the current annual expenditure on such programmes.

Mr. Dunn

The Department of Education and Science has no direct responsibility for the training of local education authority officers. Nationally co-ordinated management training courses are provided by the Society of Education Officers.
