Files of the Board of Education, University Branch, and Ministry of Education, Teachers Branch University concerning courses for students wishing to qualify as certified teachers and secondary school teachers.
Of the various sub-series of files only the papers concerned with general matters from 1931 to 1935 are extant. They record the liaison between the Board of Education and University Training Departments, the organisation of university departments and their co-operation with other colleges.
For the period 1936-1944 only one complete representative specimen file has been preserved. For the period 1945 to 1961 a greater number of files dealing with general policy matters and the provision of new courses in the university training departments have been preserved.
A file for the Department of Education, Queen's University, Belfast concerning the interchangeability of teacher training grants between England and Northern Ireland is also available.
