Motion #9
  • Executive Committee

THAT Conference welcomes, in principle, the establishment of the education consortia as a means of providing advice and support to schools on a regional basis in Wales but is concerned by the inconsistent nature and quality of some of that advice. Further, Conference questions whether, in the extreme financial climate, consortia represent the best use of scarce resources.

Conference therefore asks the Executive Committee to put forward to the Joint Executive Council that the Joint Executive Council ask the Welsh Government for clearer terms of reference to be drawn up to clarify the proper role of the consortia, as distinct from that of Estyn.
