OXFORD DIOCESAN TRAINING COLLEGE FOUNDATION FOR WOMEN

Scope and Content

From surviving paperwork it would appear that this Foundation was set up in the late 19th century to provide training for women teachers. The fund lapsed when no training college was established in Oxfordshire, and meetings of the trustees appear to have ceased by c.1910. The situation appears to have been partially revived under a Charity Commission scheme of 1929 and then gradually fell back into abeyance until the fund was rediscovered in the early 1970s.

Further items regarding the Foundation can be found at Oxfordshire History Centre in the papers of Oxford Diocese (Oxf. Dioc. papers b.125) and also in the records of the Department of Education and Science held at the National Archives (ED 40/79-80)
