New regulatory authority to oversee Further and Higher Education in Wales, 31/01/17 [W]

Cabinet Secretary for Education, Kirsty Williams AM, has accepted recommendations from Professor Ellen Hazelkorn’s independent review.

The review recommended the establishment of a single regulatory authority to oversee and co-ordinate the post-compulsory education sectors. The new body will be responsible for funding provision at all levels and ensuring quality. The needs of learners will be placed at the heart of the education system through the creation of clear and flexible learning and career pathways.

A full consultation will be undertaken in the spring.
