HC Deb 09 June 2004 vol 422 c465W
Paul Holmes

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills whether further education lecturers will be included in Teachers' TV at its launch; and if he will make a statement. [177004]

Mr. Miliband

The Department has undertaken a feasibility study and pilot for Teachers' TV and will make a decision on a channel launch shortly. As part of this work, we have looked at how the channel could support the needs of people in both Early Years and the Further Education sector, as well as people who work in schools. If the channel proceeds it will have some programmes aimed at meeting the needs of FE lecturers.
