Further and Higher Education (Governance and Information) (Wales) Act 2014

Section 2 – Instrument and articles of government of further education corporations

9.This section amends section 20 of FHEA 1992 which requires the instruments and articles of government of FECs to comply with specified requirements. It introduces Schedule 1 (which substitutes Schedule 4 to FHEA 1992) to make new, less prescriptive, provision about the content of instruments and articles of government of FECs in Wales.

10.The section also substitutes a new section for current section 22 and 22ZA of FHEA 1992. The effect of this is to remove the Welsh Ministers’ power to modify, revoke or replace the instruments and articles of government of FECs in Wales and to give FECs in Wales the power to modify or replace their instruments and articles of government.
