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 which were to have formed Addendix 4 are to be found 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.
Updated and corrected May 2012
