Administrative / Biographical History

The Association of Teachers in Colleges and Departments of Education (ATCDE) was founded in 1943 from an amalgamation of the Training Colleges Association founded [c.1858) and the Council of Principals formed in 1913. ATCDE membership was principally drawn from teacher training colleges and university education departments.

In 1976 ATCDE merged with the Association of Teachers in Technical Institutions (ATTI) to form the National Association of Teachers in Further and Higher Education (NATFHE).
