Administrative / Biographical History

The Association of Teachers in Technical Institutions was a union based largely in further education colleges and the former polytechnics. ATTI was formed in 1904 and ATCDE in 1943 from an amalgamation of the Training College Association and the Council of Principals. The Association merged with the Association of Teachers in Colleges and Departments of Education, a teacher educators' organisation in 1976 to form NATFHE, the University and College Lecturers' Union.
