Title: Teachers' Training Colleges Endowment Files

Charity Commission and Board of Education papers and correspondence relating to the administration of endowments and scholarships of teacher training colleges and schools under the Charitable Trusts Acts including schemes and orders made under these Acts.

The files retained their Charity Commission reference numbers but were also stamped with the college, school or foundation number used by the board.
