History: Following the success of the RAF Ruislip Apprentice Clerk Scheme which ran from 1925-1942, the creation of a similar post- war scheme was regarded as appropriate and the Administrative Apprenticeship Training School opened at St. Athan in May 1947, closing in August 1973.

Dedicated to all who served with the Administrative Apprentices Training School
