§ Mr. Jim Cunningham
To ask the Secretary of State for Education what plans she has to encourage colleges to monitor their equal opportunities policies.
§ Mr. Boswell
The charter for further education emphasises the importance of equal opportunities policies in FE sector colleges, and makes it clear that students have a right to expect colleges to explain what they are doing to foster equal opportunities. Within this framework, colleges are responsible for the day-to-day management of their affairs.
