Good governance is essential for all colleges and further education institutions, however they are constituted and however complex their organisation. The increasing pressure on colleges to become larger and more commercial organisations has only led to greater pressure on college governing bodies.
Good governance requires clear and workable governance structures and an understanding of the different legal and regulatory regimes that apply. Our experienced team of lawyers support further education colleges in all aspects of governance, constitutional reform and charity regulation.
The new flexibilities that allow general further education colleges to amend their instrument and articles of government presents interesting opportunities for governing bodies to consider more carefully their governance structures and make changes that fit the individual needs of their college. Our further education lawyers can help you identify these opportunities to put in place effective governance structures.
Our further education lawyers work with colleges in all aspects of their governance arrangements, including:
Client service is excellent both in terms of the quality of legal advice and responsiveness to enquiries. Matters are dealt with promptly and we have felt genuinely looked after. They are very communicative and flexible.
