Dr. Woods Dr. Woods
Minister for Education and Science (Dr. Woods): The National College of Art and Design has received 53 applications for the NUI Diploma in Art Teaching. The statistics sought by the Deputy on the number of applicants who had previously attempted to qualify as art teachers through my Department's system of art teacher training are not readily available. I have asked officials in my Department to compile these figures and I will supply them to the Deputy as soon as they are available.
