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

Section 3 – Dissolution of further education corporations

12.This section makes provision relating to the dissolution of FECs by substituting new sections 27 to 27B for existing sections 27 to 27C of FHEA 1992.  The effect of this is to remove the Welsh Ministers’ power to dissolve FECs and transfer their property, rights and liabilities to another education provider. Instead, FECs will have the power to dissolve themselves, provided they have published proposals and conducted a full consultation and taken account of the views of those consulted, in accordance with regulations. It also gives FECs the ability to transfer their property, rights or liabilities to another body for educational purposes, and with that body’s consent. The type of body will be specified in regulations.
