NCG has today welcomed the government’s plans to introduce new legislative measures that form part of the Skills and Post-16 Education Bill.
Chief Executive Officer of NCG, Liz Bromley, commented:
“NCG welcomes today’s legislative measures set out by the government which puts further education colleges at the heart of our country’s skills system and support economic recovery.
“We strongly believe opportunities to retrain and reskill should be available to everybody throughout their lives.
“Our seven colleges have played an important role in supporting students and their local communities over the past 14 months and are ready to provide learners of all ages with the skills needed to rebuild our local and national economies.
“We are looking forward to delivering these opportunities and await further commitment from the government that will ensure this ambitious plan is supported by the right legislation and fair, adequate funding.”
