Tertiary Education and Research (Wales) Act 2022

Section 96: Requirements on Commission when securing further education and training

306.This section sets out various requirements on the Commission when it is discharging its duties under sections 93, 94 and 95.

307.In performing the duties under those sections, the Commission must take into account a number of factors, including the education and training required in different sectors of employment, the needs of employees and potential employees, and the need to provide additional learning provision and assessment of additional learning needs through the medium of Welsh.

308.The Commission must also bear in mind circumstances where it might reasonably expect education and training to be secured by other bodies without drawing on its own resources, for example additional learning needs provision secured by local authorities under the Additional Learning Needs and Education Tribunal (Wales) Act 2018.

309.The Commission must make best use of its resources and in particular avoid provision which might give rise to disproportionate expenditure. Provision is not to be considered as giving rise to disproportionate expenditure solely because it is more expensive than comparable provision.
