Further education regional board


The further education regional board is a committee of court. The Post-16 Education (Scotland) Act makes the University of the Highlands and Islands court accountable for all college and university-level education in the Highlands and Islands. This means that from 1 August 2014, the university has responsibility for all education in the region after students leave school.

The further education regional board will ensure all the colleges which deliver further education in the region, and which form the university partnership, work together to meet the needs of their respective communities as well as those of the wider area. The chair of the further education regional board, Dr Michael Foxley, is also a member of the court.
