Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)

The Education (Listed Bodies) (Scotland) Order 2007 (“the 2007 Order”) lists the name of every body which is not a recognised body within section 216(4) of the Education Reform Act 1988 but which appears to the Scottish Ministers either–

(a)to provide a course which is in preparation for a degree to be granted by such a recognised body and is approved by or on behalf of that body; or

(b)to be a constituent college, school, hall or other institution of a university which is such a recognised body.

This Order amends the 2007 Order to update the list of bodies contained in the Schedule to that Order. Articles 3(a) and 4(a) remove entries for bodies which no longer provide courses which are approved by or on behalf of a recognised body. Articles 3(e) and 4(b) add entries for bodies which now provide courses that are approved by or on behalf of a recognised body. Article 3(b), (c) and (d) correct entries for bodies which have changed their names since the 2007 Order was made.
