Dates of existence
Local committees for the training of teachers were established in 1895 in connection with the ancient Scottish universities, as a means of training university graduates for secondary school teaching. The University of Glasgow was late in establishing such a committee in 1903. In its few years of existence, the Glasgow committee trained around 100 students per year. The King's students attended university classes for most of their studies, but had tuition elsewhere in school methods, phonetics, physical training and other subjects necessary for teaching. The work of the Glasgow King's Students Committee was subsumed within the new Glasgow Provincial Committee for the Training of Teachers, set up in 1905.
