HC Deb 09 February 1995 vol 254 c386W
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.
