Following the publication of Government Circulars on Technical Education in August and September 1891, meetings were held throughout Scotland to advance this cause. The Scottish Association for the Promotion of Technical and Secondary Education was formed with the objects of promoting the development, systematisation and unification of higher education and securing funding for secondary and technical education for Local Authorities. Henry Dyer, President of the Glasgow and West of Scotland Technical College, was a member of the Committee.
