Following the wishes of Commonwealth Education Ministers, the Commonwealth Secretariat has given high priority to technical education and industrial training, and in 1966 organized a Commonwealth Conference on the Education and Training of Technicians which was held at the Huddersfield College of Education (Technical). Taking their lead from this Conference, and endorsing its recommendations, the Fourth and Fifth Commonwealth Education Conferences gave a more specific remit to the Secretariat to develop activities in support of technician education. The practical training of technicians in industry and the training of technical teachers are two areas in which the Secretariat has been investigating a generally inadequate provision of facilities.
