National Youth Training Camps

National Youth Training Camps


Allow me to use your columns to offer advice to any students considering one or more years of teacher training.

Training Colleges are conservative. Depending on your orientation you might say "good", "all the more reason to avoid them", or "all the more reason my going there". Our advice is for those in the last category.

If you really want to get into a training college don't give the recruitment officer or selection panel any reason to suspect you are unwilling to take shit lying down. Keep quiet about your involvement in Hart, COV, CND and other effete, radic-lib organizations, at least until you have written confirmation of acceptance. Neither is it wise to voice ideas about progressive or even liberal education. Save these ideas for reactionary lecturers and fellow students.

Don't be shy in seeking further advice from us who have gone before you. Many T.C. graduates will be only too glad to help you attempt to put these institutions back in touch with reality.
