Tertiary Education and Research (Wales) Act 2022

Section 95: Education and training for persons over 19

303.Section 95 sets out the duty of the Commission to secure the provision of ‘reasonable’ facilities for Wales for the education and training of people 19 and over. Facilities are ‘reasonable’ if they are of a quality and quantity which the Commission can reasonably be expected to provide taking account of the resources available to it. “Facilities for Wales” includes facilities in Wales, and other facilities available to persons ordinarily resident in Wales (see section 144(1)).

304.The facilities to be secured for education and training include both full-time and part-time further education and training as well as vocational, social, physical and recreational training (see the definitions in section 144(2) to (5)). This includes organised activities offering opportunities for non-formal learning which may not lead to a qualification. For example, adult learning opportunities in community settings including education engagement activities.

305.The Commission’s duties under this section do not extend to higher education (see paragraphs 277 to 280 for an explanation of the Commission’s powers to fund higher education).
