Section 256: Further education corporations in England: co-operation and promotion of well-being

871.Subsection (2) of this section amends section 19 of the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 (the “1992 Act”) to enable a further education corporation in England to provide advice or assistance to other persons, where it appears appropriate to do so, either for the purposes of or in connection with the provision of education by those persons. Subsection (3) inserts a new section 19A into the 1992 Act. The new section provides that, in carrying out their functions under sections 18 and 19 of the 1992 Act, further education corporations in England must have regard to the objective of promoting the economic and social well-being of the local area, including the people who live in that area. In doing so, the corporations must have regard to any guidance which the Secretary of State may issue about cooperating, or working jointly, with other educational institutions, employers or other people.
