Administrative/Biographical history: The College of Food Technology was established by Cardiff County Borough Council Local Education Authority in 1957 and formed its own Governing Body with representatives drawn mainly from the LEA and initially from professional catering bodies, catering trade unions, Glamorgan Education Authority and the Welsh Joint Education Committee. Support from commercial organisations, professional and retail bodies came mainly in the form of sponsorship and the supply of equipment. The college was located in... but approval was granted in 1961 for removal to Howard Gardens on the site of Fitzalan Technical High School. In 1962, however, the authority decided to form a new college combining commerce with food technology and 'women's work' based in Colchester Avenue, Cardiff. The name College of Food Technology and Commerce was adopted in 1963 and it moved in stages to Colchester Avenue by 1966.
