§ Mr. Don Foster
To ask the Secretary of State for Education whether students who are being trained in school-centred consortia, in the absence of a direct involvement by an institute of higher education, came within the scope of the provisions of the charter for higher education.
§ Mr. Boswell
The charter for higher education explains the standards of service that higher education users can expect of publicly funded universities and colleges. It does not relate directly to the standards of service provided by other institutions involved in the delivery of education or training of a similar level or kind.
