Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) asked the Minister representing the Treasurer, upon notice:

(1)   What forms of cadetship, if any, have been made available in recent years by the Commonwealth Banking Corporation to young men and women who have recently completed their schooling and intend going on to a university, a college of advanced education, a technical college or similar educational institution.

(2)   What forms of cadetship have been made available this year by the Commonwealth Banking Corporation.

Senator Sir KENNETH ANDERSON - The Treasurer has provided the following answer to the honourable senator's question:

The Commonwealth Banking Corporation has provided the following information:

(1)   In recent years the Commonwealth Banking Corporation has made available a limited number of cadetships. These take several forms and are awarded to young men and women who have recently completed schooling who seek (and appear suited to) a career in the Commonwealth

Banking Corporation and who wish to proceed to tertiary studies. These cadetships are made available to young people for attendance at Universities, Colleges of Advanced Education and Technical Colleges to enable the recipients to follow study courses that meet the special needs of the Corporation. University courses are normally taken in the Faculties of Economics, Commerce or Arts. For attendance at Colleges of Advanced Education and Technical Colleges, bursaries are granted to enable the recipients to follow courses with a commercial orientation. The following forms of cadetship have been available over recent years:

Cadetships for full-time study at University.

Outstanding matriculation examination results are a pre-requisite to qualify for consideration for one of these cadetships.

Cadetships for part-time study at University. These are usually granted for evening courses only.

Cadetships for study at Colleges of Advanced Education. It is usual for these courses also to be undertaken on an evening study basis.

Cadetships for evening study courses at Technical Colleges.

(2)   The Corporation has continued to make available these forms of cadetship this year. Each form of cadetship is also available to young people who have already partially completed an appropriate tertiary study course and who wish to embark on, and appear suited to, a career in the Commonwealth Banking Corporation. Further, officers in the Service of the Corporation who have been pursuing University courses on a parttime evening study basis, and who have good study records, are eligible for the award of a cadetship to allow them to complete their studies as full-time students.
