Public sector status for colleges: SFCA responds to reviewPublic sector status for colleges: SFCA responds to review

Commenting on the ONS' review of colleges' private sector status, Bill Watkin, Chief Executive of the Sixth Form Colleges Association, said:

"“Sixth form colleges will continue to do an outstanding job for students, irrespective of whether they remain in the private sector or move to the public sector. The key issue is what a move to the public sector would mean in practice, and there are a lot of unknowns and details to work through. Our assumption is that sixth form colleges would be treated in the same way as 16-19 academies and other public sector providers, which would include benefiting from a VAT refund scheme. We’ll be working with ONS, HMT and DfE in the months ahead to ensure there is a fair and swift conclusion to this major review”.
