Mr Reynolds asked the Minister for Education and Science, upon notice:

(1)   Can he say how many (a) full-time and (b) part-time technical teachers are employed by education departments in each State and in each Commonwealth Territory.

(2)   Of the part-time teachers (a) how many have and (b) what percentage has received the equivalent of at least (i) 3 months, (ii) 6 months and (iii) one year full-time professional teacher training.

Mr N H Bowen (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   Information on numbers of technical teachers employed by education departments in the States is available, I believe, in published reports of State education and technical education departments, to which the honourable member may wish to refer. Details in respect of technical teachers employed either by the Commonwealth or the State departments in the Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory as at October 1970 are as follows:

The 28 part-time teachers in the Northern Territory are those in the Adult Education Centre who teach technical subjects.

(2)   The information requested on the extent of professional training received by part-time technical teachers in the States and Territories is not readily available.
