The Chartered Institution for Further Education Welcomes Three New Members

London, February 2018: The Chartered Institution for Further Education is pleased to welcome

three new members:

Trafford College

WMC – The Camden College

Burton and South Derbyshire College

Commenting on their acceptance to the Charter, Principal of Trafford College, Lesley Davies OBE, said:

We are delighted to have been awarded chartered status. This accolade distinguishes us as a leading education provider and is a testament to our vision of becoming a career college.  At the heart of this vision is the dedication of our staff who work tirelessly to provide high quality teaching and learning for our students so that they achieve their career goals as well as meeting the training needs of local employers.

Principal of WMC – The Camden College Helen Hammond said:

I am delighted that WMC-The Camden College has achieved the distinction of being the first adult college in London to join the Chartered Institute for Further Education (CIFE) membership. This supports our Ofsted ‘outstanding’ grade and recognises our continued efforts to ensure WMC-The Camden College is a learner-centred college dedicated to widening access to education for all adults across London.

We look forward to being part of this nationally recognised membership that recognises our commitment for providing high standards and opportunities for lifelong learning by improving employment prospects for the diverse range of London adults who may not be able to study full time or who need to fit their studies in alongside work and family commitments.

I hope WMC-The Camden College can motivate other Colleges to join the CIFE membership to show their level of excellence in education.

Principal of Burton and South Derbyshire College Dawn Ward, CBE said:

I am delighted that we are now a member of the Chartered Institution for Further Education. The CIFE recognises the broad reach and scope within Colleges such as ours and the impact we have on the local economy, how we help individuals develop the skills needed for successful careers and the wide ranging work we undertake with employers helping them improve productivity by developing the skills of their workforce. Chartered Institutions are also part of the landscape that employers understand so having one that represents and celebrates Further Education really emphasises and communicates the valuable and important work done by so many in our sector.

Dan Wright, CEO and Secretary of the Chartered Institution for Further Education said:

We are delighted to Welcome Trafford College into Membership

Trafford College clearly has demonstrated the maintenance of high quality standards and providing good teaching and learning over a sustained period of time and fully met all of our Membership criteria.

 

We are delighted to welcome WMC – The Camden College into Membership.

The application submitted demonstrated that the college has strong leadership and management and in particular is highly responsive to the needs of its learners. In particular we were impressed by the quality of the college’s strategic plan and its strong links with the community it serves.

 

We are delighted to welcome Burton and South Derbyshire College into Membership.

The college has forged strong relationships across the sector, has demonstrated that it is responsive to challenge and is highly regarded by students and employers who view Burton and South Derbyshire College as a model training provider.


when will the government subsidies end?


The Chartered Institution for Further Education, the brainchild of the former skills minister John Hayes, was first conceived back in 2012, to get high-achieving FE providers the royal seal of approval.

But almost six years later – and more than two years after it first started accepting paying members – 11 providers have been joined. The organisations has received more than £1 million in public subsidy, and is still being propped up to the tune of £210,000 a year.

Membership costs 

Organisations pay  £3,000 fee to have their application assessed – a process that involves a financial assessment as well as evaluation against the institution’s quality criteria – and a further £5,000 a year in membership fees.
