National Council for Technological Awards
Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The National Council for Technological Awards was established by the Minister of Education in July 1955. The Council's Governing Body and Boards of Studies met for the first time in December 1955, though it was governed by a Declaration of Trust dated 22 November 1956. The Council had two Boards of Studies, in Engineering and in Technologies other than Engineering, to create and administer awards for students in technical colleges who completed courses in technology approved by the Governing Body (the Diploma in Technology). In May 1959 the Council established the College of Technologists, which granted Membership for research work. The Council handed its responsibilities on to the Council for National Academic Awards (CNAA) in 1964.
