Chance to Learn to Get Out of that RutIt seems a wicked waste to me to see a woman with a good head on her shoulders doing a mundane, run-of-the-mill job simply because she has never been trained for something more fitted to her intelligence.

Yet it is a common enough situation. Perhaps she did not have the opportunity to stay on at school when she was in her teens. Perhaps, at the time, she did not want to. Now as the children grow older and her responsibilities grow less, the jobs for which she is fitted seem singularly dull.

What is she to do to remedy the situation?

Hornchurch College of Further Education have just introduced a course with this kind of marred woman in mind.

Starting in September, this college is offering women daytime course in GCE “O” and “A” levels, audio typing, and computer programming.


Women will be able to gain entry qualifications as secretaries, laboratory technicians, library assistants and nursery auxiliaries, teachers and computer programmers.

Providing the demand is sufficient, six-months-long full-time courses will be held at Hornchurch. Courses will be held from 9.30 a.m.-12.30 p.m. with modifications in certain cases and no attendance needed in the school holidays.

Latest techniques will be used with tape recordings and programmed instruction.


Cost of the instruction will be given at the interview but will be somewhere around £5 a term for a course and 13s. 6d. for a single subject short course. Applications should be made to the college by Friday September 10.
