in 1849, and in each succeeding year of his apprenticeship, in the month of July,, my Lords propose, in July 1849, to examine him as for the end of the year, and if he passes to pay him 81. 6s. 8d. The next year would commence from the 1st of July 1849, at the rate of 121. 10s. per annum; and thus, in point of emolument, he would gain a higher stipend, for the months of August and July, than according to his original engagement, by which he would have been paid for those two months only after the rate of 101. per annum. Again, suppose that the school of another pupil-teacher, apprenticed at the same date, could not be visited until November. In this case my Lords would pay him in November, if he passed the requisite examination, for a service of fourteen months, instead of twelve months, viz.-111. 13s. 4d. instead of 101. In this case, the pupil-teacher would have had two additional months to prepare for his examination ; and, so far, if he made the best of his time, he would have a better chance of passing in the subjects entitling him to receive the emoluments of a later year.
The part of the district in which your school is situated will be visited in the months of
and The indentures are dated the first of I am therefore to propose that the requisite change in the dates be made so as to bring the indentures into harmony with the time at which Her Majesty's Inspector will be in that part of his district.
The pupil-teachers will receive, if this arrangement is agreed to, at the next examination a stipend, and the master (or mistress) a gratuity, proportional to the time of
months during which they will have served, instead of that for a year. This stipend will be calculated at the rate of the year of the apprenticeship in which they now stand. From the first of
the payments will proceed as if the indentures had originally been dated in that month.
I am to request that you will be good enough to inform me as soon as possible whether this course is agreed to by the managers of the school, and by those who originally signed the indentures.
I have the honor to be, &c.

Extract from Circular Letter addressed to Authorities of Training
Schools under Inspection, announcing that Certificates of Merit will not be issued till Students have taken charge of Elementary Schools.
Committee of Council on Education,
Privy Council Office, Downing street, REVEREND SIR,
20 November 1849.
I am directed to take this opportunity of informing you that the Committee of Council have had reason to fear that, in some instances, the certificates of merit granted to students in training schools, before their powers of conducting a school had been tested by actual probation, have not afterwards been confirmed by a corresponding efficiency on the part of those students in the discharge of the duties of their profession, when appointed to situations as masters. Their Lordships are, therefore, of opinion that it will be expedient to suspend the certificates of successful students in training schools till after they have taken charge of elementary schools, and have been reported on by Her Majesty's Inspectors. Their names will, however, be inserted on the class lists as usual, and grants made to the training schools on their behalf, in the same manner as if they had received certificates corresponding to their position in those lists. ENGLAND AND WALES.-NATIONAL AND CHURCH OF ENGLAND SCHOOLS. ards Erection or Improvement of School Buildings; from 1st of January 1848 to s, inclusive.
Their Lordships trust that, by this means, their certificates will not be brought into discredit by appearing to give an untrue estimate of the value of the holders' powers, and that, at the same time, young men will not be tempted by the early possession of them to leave the institution before the authorities, to whom it is intrusted, consider them to have completed the course necessary to render them fully equal to their duties.
I have the honor to be, &c.,
For the Acting Assistant Secretary.
