Jordanhill College of Education, 76 Southbrae Drive, Glasgow G13 1PP

UKNIWM: Not Listed
OS Grid Ref: NS 531683

The Church of Scotland and the Free Church founded and managed Glasgow's first teacher training colleges. In 1905, however, the churches' colleges were transferred to the state and local Provincial Committees were set up to manage them.
In 1911, the Glasgow Provincial Committee (GPC) recommended the purchase of the Jordanhill Estate in order to build a modern new college. The architects H & D Barclay were commissioned and building work started in 1914. The first students were admitted in September 1921 and the building was officially opened in 1922.
The red sandstone building is in a Franco-Flemish style and the twin towers at the front are clad in copper. During the Second World War local legend had it that the Luftwaffe used the twin towers to line up their approaches during bombing raids on Clydebank.
Between 1920 and 1959 this College had been managed by the Central Executive Committee of the National Committee for the Training of Teachers which had responsibility for all training colleges' finances, buildings, staffing, student numbers and courses.
In 1959 this centralised system was abandoned and the Glasgow Provincial Training College was given its own governing body, becoming Jordanhill College of Education.
In 1981Hamilton College was absorbed in Jordanhill.
In 1992 Jordanhill became an Associate Institution of Strathclyde University and on 1 April 1993 it merged with the University and formed their Faculty of Education.

The WW1 memorial is situated in the foyer of the David Stow building.

Glasgow University Biography

Robert Munro Cameron was born on 10 September 1887 in Dailly, Ayrshire to Donald Cameron, a school board offer, and his wife, Lily Bell.

In 1906, Robert came to Glasgow to train for the teaching profession. He studied concurrently for an Arts degree at the University, and for a teaching qualification at the Glasgow Provincial Training College, now the University of Strathclyde. His University subjects included Latin, Logic and Moral Philosophy, and he graduated as Master of Arts on 8 June 1909. Several weeks later, on 30 June, Robert completed his course at the Glasgow Provincial Training College to earn the Teacher’s General Certificate, which qualified him to teach in primary schools, with additional qualifications to teach singing, drawing, woodwork and physical exercises. He subsequently held teaching posts at Canning Place Public School in Glasgow from 2 September – 18 November 1909, and at Calder Street Public School in Govan from 19 November 1909.

During the First World War, Robert served as Lance Corporal with the 6th Cameron Highlanders: Machine Gun Section. He died of wounds sustained in action on 30 May 1916, his bravery described by a contemporary press cutting as follows:

"During the attack he displayed courage and determination when ordered to carry a position occupied by the enemy on his right flank. Through his successful efforts the company was able to proceed with the advance and though wounded he continued to render valuable assistance."

Lance Corporal Robert Munro Cameron is buried in Bethune Town Cemetery. He is remembered in the Roll of Honour of the Glasgow Provincial Committee for the Training of Teachers.
