Files of the Board of Education, Technical Branch, and Ministry of Education, Further Education Branch relating to the recognition and approval, for the purposes of grant, of adult education vacation courses sponsored by universities and other national bodies.
The papers in this series include particulars of students such as previous classes attended; subject of study, and period of attendance; H.M. Inspectors' reports and in many instances prospectuses and director's reports issued by the 'Responsible Bodies'.
The papers reflect the flexibility gained by the 'Responsible Bodies' under the Further Education Grant Regulations, 1946. As a result of further changes in assessment of grant following the report of a Committee set up in 1953 on 'The Organisation and Finance of Adult Education', the Vacation Courses papers ceased to exist as a separate series of files.
