The Establishment of Centres for the Training of Teachers in Technical and Further Education in England, 1933-1950
Bailey, Bill
Journal of Vocational Education and Training, v59 n3 p279-294 Sep 2007
This paper examines the beginnings of courses of teacher training for teachers in technical and further education in England. First the development of the technical education sector and its distinctive part-time nature is traced, alongside the activities of the three associations representing the colleges and their staffs. The views of these on the proposals of the Board of Education to introduce an experiment in technical teacher training in the late 1930s are considered. The wartime planning of technical teacher training as part of the emergency teacher training scheme is discussed, and the setting-up of three centres for teacher training in technical colleges and their work up to 1950 are outlined. (Contains 1 table and 14 notes.)
