A Short History of the British University

In 1999, I was asked about education in nineteenth century England, the article "A Short History of the British University" contains my response to this request. This article may be of interest to both those planning to attend university or have completed their university study.


This is a short article I wrote in 1992 for the 53rd Garnett Society Journal. The Garnet Society was formed for past students of the Garnett College. This was the first institution to provide teacher training in the further education sector. It was incorporated into Thames Polytechnic now the University of Greenwich. As a Garnett student, I joined the Garnett Society on completing my teacher training, and was a committee member until the winding up of the Garnett Society in the mid 1990's. 

1992 Critical Report on Government Educational Policies for the Engineering Sector

For the final part of my teacher training course, I carried out a detailed study into government educational policies. Asking the question were these deskilling the British work force. The conclusions then made bleak reading and are still relevant today as they point in the direction that the future work force in Britain would not meet the skills required. This is the situation today with the government almost on a daily basis lamenting that we do not produce the required skilled workers that companies need.
