ColegauCymru/CollegesWales anticipates the Diamond Review


Wales’ post-16 education charity ColegauCymru / CollegesWales is today awaiting the full publication of the final Diamond report.

Chief Executive of ColegauCymru / CollegesWales, Iestyn Davies, said: "As the Diamond Review is due to be published on 27th September, our priority is to emphasise that any solution offered in relation to HE funding and student finance is that it has to work for all learners and students in Wales. FE colleges and institutions offer learners opportunities to pursue their careers through degree routes as well as through vocational study and play an equally important part in delivering the skills needs of Wales alongside our HE colleagues.”

Iestyn Davies added, “A move towards addressing the real as well as the perceived needs of learners, alongside the requirements of institutions must be at the heart of a sustainable settlement.”
