The Supply and Training of Teachers for Further Education, Report of the Standing Sub-committee on Teachers for Further Education of the National Advisory Council on the Training and Supply of Teachers.
Department of Education and Science, London (England).
With the aim of substantially increasing the number and proportion of trained teachers in British further education, a subcommittee of the National Advisory Council on the Training and Supply of Teachers reported on the requirements and objectives of professional training, estimated numbers of teachers needed through 1973-74, needed expansion of training facilities and opportunities, the timing of training requirements, and alternative training measures (extramural training, professional continuing education, short courses, full time and part time courses). The following steps were recommended: (1) local education authorities (LEA's) should eventually secure the professional training, on full salary, of all new entering assistant lecturers within three years of their appointment, (2) LEA's should not only pay salaries and travel expenses, but should also be allowed to make special grants to teachers whose participation in residential training would otherwise impose a hardship, (3) the requirements should be introduced in 1969 and promptly announced, and (4) efforts should be made to develop the extramural activities of colleges of education. An appendix and 19 tables are included. (ly)
