asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many and what percentage of teachers working with integrated classes hold a specialist qualification; how many and what percentage have received in-service training since the implementation of the Education Act 1981; and whether he will make a statement.
Some of the information requested by the hon. Member is not collected centrally. The remainder is contained in my answer of 3 April 1985 to the hon. Member at columns 617–18.
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many teachers teaching in special schools had a specialist qualification at the latest date for which figures are available; and what proportion of the special school teaching force this represents.
In England, in January 1984, there were 5,339 full-time and part-time teachers in maintained and non-maintained special schools holding one or more specialist qualifications; this represents around a third of the special school qualified teaching force.
