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

Section 6 – Abolition of duties of further education institutions to comply with directions

17.This section amends sections 33J and 33L of the Learning and Skills Act 2000 and sections 116I and 116K of the Education Act 2002. Those provisions are concerned with planning and delivering local curricula in Wales, which are local authority-wide curricula established by local authorities or the Welsh Ministers. The effect of the amendments is to remove the requirement for FEIs to comply with directions made by the Welsh Ministers relating to the planning of local curricula and joint working to deliver local curricula. FEIs must however still have regard to guidance given by Welsh Ministers in respect of planning and delivering local curricula.
