HC Deb 22 June 2001 vol 370 c9W
Mr. Hurst

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what plans her Department has to abolish application fees for teacher training courses. [398]

Mr. Timms

Applications for undergraduate and postgraduate courses of initial teacher training are made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service and the Graduate Teacher Training Registry respectively. These bodies are in the private sector and it is for them to determine the level of any fees they charge to cover the handling of applications.
