A progress report was kept for each student and a report of his progress was sent to the Personnel/Welfare Officer of the firm or office responsible for nominating the boy.
Each report included the observations of the Resident Warden and Tutor concerning the boy's "intelligence, articulation, social and religious expression and leadership capacity" and other special notes which it was considered might be of help to the boy and his personnel officer. Additionally, if a boy had taken the Quiz Examination, his marks were given in Aspects of National Life, Civics, Committee Procedure and Psychology.
Citizenship Three Year (Part Time)
Syllabus, First Year:
Notes on Syllabus,
responsibility by taking
organisation of social and recreational activities and disciplinary action (if necessary). Students were encouraged to take part in religious devotions in the Chapel if they felt able to do so.
Students were not necessarily obliged to complete the three year part time training. Admission to a particular year's course, however, was subject to completion of that of a preceding year.
The syllabus was designed on the assumption that the boy would come to the College for one week in the year and possibly for three consecutive years. In addition to residence at the College the boy would have the opportunity of attending a study circle or class established in his own locality. The subjects touched on the immediate life and interests of the boy.
The Experiment Justified:
In 1947 the Finance Committee agreed that future control and administration of the College should be as follows:
General control of the finances of the College were vested in the Holiday and Training Centres Committee of the Council.
General direction of administration and programme became the responsibility of a small joint-committee appointed from the Finance and Revenue Committee and the Council's Educational Department, under the Chairmanship of Mr. E. R. Thomas, Headmaster of Pontypridd Boys' Grammar School.
Appointment of Warden:
One of the first recommendations of the Joint Committee was the appointment of a Warden, and Mr. V. S. Pate, M.A., was invited to become Warden from the 1st September, 1947. By this time it had been agreed by the Executive of the Council that members of the Joint Committee be invited to form a Board of Governors for the College.
