Council for Technical Education

The Council for Technical Education consists of a group of men whose experience and knowledge fit them to consider objectively and dispassionately any question related to technical education that may be submitted to them. The main duties of the council are to advise the Minister of Education on any matter relating to education and training for industry and commerce, and to foster close relations between technical education and industry and commerce. The Council could be paralleled at various levels by national and local committees, both temporary and permanent, by means of which the cooperation between industry and commerce and the education service, that is so desirable, can be made effective and fruitful.
