asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science (1) what proportion of staff in non-advanced further education are on the grade (a) lecturer I and (b) lecturer II;(2) what proportion of lecturers in non-advanced further education hold degreess or equivalent qualifications.
Centrally available information on lecturers' qualifications identifies the establishments where they work, not the level of the courses they teach. Establishments can be classified according to the proportion of students undertaking non-advanced courses. About two thirds of those students are in establishments where all but a small minority of students are on such courses. In England in 1985, the latest year for which information is available, 41 per cent. of full-time lecturers in those establishments were recorded as having degrees or equivalent qualifications. In the same year, 48 per cent. of all full-time lecturers in those establishments were on the lecturer I grade and 30 per cent. were on the lecturer II grade.
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what proportion of work in non-advanced further education is (a) O-level equivalent, category V, and (b) A-level equivalent, category IV.
In the academic year 1985–86, 43 per cent. of timetabled student hours in non-advanced further education in England were spent in Burnham category V work and 51 per cent. in Burnham category IV work. The remaining 6 per cent. of non-advanced work was Burnham category
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the ratio of students to staff in non-advanced further education in terms of full-time equivalent numbers.
The ratio of full-time equivalent student numbers to full-time equivalent staff numbers in non-advanced further education in England in the academic year 1985–86 was 10·3 to 1. The survey upon which this is based covers about three quarters of non-advanced work in the maintained sector.
