Board of Education: Technical Branch: Technical Colleges, Registered Files (T Series)
Registered files of the Board of Education, Technical Branch concerning the work and organisation of technical colleges
These files relate mainly to applications for the approval of National Certificate courses. They also contain H.M. Inspectors' subject reports, comments and reports on the local aspects of technical education, general correspondence, syllabuses, prospectuses, and papers relating to premises.
The records of some colleges contain early papers having particular reference to the endorsement by the Board of Education of grouped course certificates.
From 1945 technical colleges and technical schools papers have been merged to form a new file series. However, in a few cases papers dated after 1944 have been included in the series due to either the closure of the college or the termination of a particular national certificate course.
Alphabetical in county order for England and Wales.
Ministry of Education, Further Education Branch, 1944-1963
The grouped course certificates scheme was initiated under Chapter 6 of the 1907-1908 Regulations (subsequently Chapter 5) and continued until after the close of the First World War when the Board of Education combined with various professional bodies in the formation of schemes for the award of national certificates.
