Report on the Future of the Teachers Centre for Continuing Education.
Western Australia Post Secondary Education Commission, Nedlands.
The Teachers Centre for Continuing Education was established to provide opportunities for teachers to undertake further study in order to upgrade their professional qualifications. The Western Australia Post Secondary Education Commission, acting on the Partridge Report on Post-Secondary Education in Western Australia, investigated recommendations that the Centre be phased out. It was suggested that a multi-campus education institution offer part-time and external courses for inservice study. Reasons for this change include: (1) declining Centre enrollment; (2) decreased need for the Centre, which was originally established when opportunity for inservice study was limited; (3) ability of existing education institutions to offer more appropriate courses; and (4) limited geographic applicability of Centre courses. The Commission recommends that the Teachers Centre for Continuing Education be phased out over a three year period. This phasing out must be well publicized. No new students are to be permitted to enroll, and all possible steps to ensure that the rights and interests of Centre staff members are preserved are to be taken. (CJ)
