The guide summarises the legal and regulatory requirements that apply to FE college and sixth-form college corporations, together with recommended practice. Aspects of the guide will also be relevant to designated institutions. The updated version reinforces expectations in some key areas, in line with Skills for jobs white paper themes, and it provides new material where the sector has indicated that would be helpful. For example, guidance on equality, diversity and inclusion has been strengthened. This includes an emphasis on good recruitment practice for governor and senior leader appointments, to secure a diverse range of candidates with the right skills mix. The guide also covers the new governance funding requirements introduced this year, and the new legal duties arising. The guide can be found here. A downloadable version of the guidance is available below.
