Section 33B: Subsequent designation of existing bodies corporate as sixth form college corporations

345.This new section gives the Secretary of State further power to designate, by order, FE corporations as sixth form college corporations once the power in section 33A is no longer exercisable. A designation order may be considered only after the governing body of a FE college has applied to the Secretary of State and if, on the date of application, at least 80% of the total enrolment number at the institution is aged 16 or over but under 19. The “total enrolment number” is defined as the full-time equivalence number (as calculated under Schedule 3 to the FHEA 1992). The designation order may provide for the continuity of governance between the former FE corporation and the new sixth form college corporation and may specify the initial name of the new corporation.
