To add value to the histories I have included a number of appendices that will hopefully provide additional information and background about technical education and training and technical and commercial examinations. I hope the material proves helpful. I will continue to correct and add to these sections.
The biographies and pen portraits appear in a separate section under biographies and pen portraits. Additional material for this section will be updated and new material added.
The section containing articles comprises a series of pieces new and some previously published during the 1990s and early 2000s which have been updated on themes associated with technical education and training. I am grateful to the publishers for their kind permission to reproduce the original articles. In addition a series of views have been included.
Other sections have been created to add value to the site including data/statistics on examinations, colleges/providers. The latest addition to the site is ‘Counterpoint’ that will comprise a series of articles from other writers I am very grateful to them for their interesting and valuable contributions.
