CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: The Glamorgan Training College was established by the Glamorgan County Council in 1914 to train women teachers from Glamorgan and Monmouthshire. The catchment area was extended in 1947 to include women from across the country, and from 1962 men were admitted. In 1965 its name was changed to the Glamorgan College of Further Education; ten years later, after local government re-organisation, it was merged with the Glamorgan Polytechnic at Treforest, Pontypridd. The site closed at the end of the summer term in 1981. The association of the college with the University of Wales began in 1924 and was formalised on the establishment of the University Board for Training Colleges in 1929. In 1949 the Board was replaced by the school of education whose governing body was the University Board of Education. The University Faculty of Education consisted of representatives of teaching staff of participating colleges, and there was also a collegiate faculty for those colleges attached to University College, Cardiff. The connection ended when the college became part of the Glamorgan Polytechnic.
