You will observe, that, as your examination embraced written papers and the instruction of a class, so this certificate is framed with a view to record both your intellectual qualifications, and your practical ability as a teacher. It is in your power to accumulate evidence of the former kind by presenting yourself with increased attainments at successive examinations, and of the latter by exhibiting the growth of your school in instruction, discipline, and organization, at each annual visit of H.M. Inspector.
You are doubtless aware that your certificate, although the primary, is not the only condition upon which my Lords are authorized to augment your salary.
You have already received, with the circular announcing the result of the examination, a “broad sheet,” containing full inforınation in all that relates to this part of their Lordships' Minutes of August and December 1846.
*I beg leave to call your attention particularly to the times and mode in which the augmentation of salary corresponding to your certificate, will, if allowed, be made. The augmentation commences from the quarter day next following the date of your examination, viz., from
184 , and is payable on the same day, 184. Payment will be made by Post Office orders directly to yourself.
In case you should remove from the school in which you are at present engaged, and enter upon the charge of another school, it will be necessary that you should carefully bear in mind the following directions for the continuation of your grant,
1. The school of which you have charge must be rendered liable (if not so already) to inspection, and must fulfil the various conditions set forth in the “ broad sheet.”
2. No grants of augmentation will be made for periods of less than a year, nor to teachers who have not been in charge of the same school during the whole of the year, in respect of which the grant is made.
3. If teachers remove from their schools before the year has expired, their Lordships will date the period, at which their annual augmentations will be conditionally due, from the quarter day next following the commencement of their new engagements; and will direct the inspection of their new schools to take place within one year from that time.
The reasons for these regulations are as follows.
Their Lordships cannot inspect two schools, to determine whether the conditions of the augmentation of salary to one teacher have been fulfilled.
They think it desirable to encourage the permanence of engagements between teachers and school-managers.
If fragmentary payments were contemplated, for services during portions only of the year, it would be impossible to provide for the inspection of the school before the removal of the teacher.
4. You will, therefore, in case you should remove from your present school to a new one, have the goodness 10 give me immediate notice,
* The remainder of this letter (except the last paragraph) was not included in the Form No.xxii. originally adopted; but it has been made the subject of an additional circular to those tecchers who had received the original Form xxii.
and to specify the exact date at which you entered upon your new engagement.
I beg leave to congratulate you upon obtaining your certificate, and to express my hope that it may form one of many evidences of your success in an honorable career.
I have the honor to be, Sir,
Your obedient servant,
