FE Commissioner role split into two
Two candidates set to take over from outgoing FE commissioner
The role of the FE commissioner will be split in two following Sir David Collins’ concern over his workload covering both intervention and area reviews...
Sir David, the departing commissioner, is responsible for both the intervention and area review programme.
He described during his presentation at FE Week’s Festival of Skills in June, that initially the treasury thought area reviews could be done and dusted in three months.
He said this “gives you a very good indication of the knowledge of the FE sector by the treasury, in that three months we would do something that involves 243 FE colleges, 96 SFCs, local authorities and local enterprise partnerships right across the country”.
“But actually in the 18 month period up to March 2017 it is doable. It does mean that myself and my colleagues are doing more mileage than the average Eddie Stobart driver,” he added.' - FE Week
