Administrative / Biographical History

The Association of Teachers in Colleges and Departments of Education was formed in 1943 by the merger of the Training College Association (founded 1891) and the Council of Principals (founded 1913). Membership was principally drawn from teacher training colleges and university education departments. One of the Association's subsidiary roles was to supply information concerning the admissions process, involving the Central Register and Clearing House and the Graduate Teacher Training Registry. The South Wales Branch met at colleges throughout south Wales including Barry, Cardiff, Caerleon, Swansea and Carmarthen. In 1976 the Association amalgamated with the Association of Teachers in Technical Institutions to form the National Association of Teachers in Further and Higher Education.
