Tertiary Education & Research (Wales) Bill

Responding the Welsh Government’s vision for post-16 reform published today, David Blaney, Chief Executive of HEFCW, said: “We welcome the proposals to strengthen the cohesion of post-compulsory education, training and research, funded and regulated by a single arm’s-length body. Our thirty years of experience operating as an arm’s-length body funding and regulating higher education means that, working with the Welsh Government and offering our expertise to the Senedd, we will play our part in securing a strong PCET system to better meet the needs of learners and the social and economic needs of Wales.”
