List of recognised FE institutions

Ben Harris made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Employment and Learning (Northern Ireland)

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Employment and Learning (Northern Ireland),

Under article 8(7) of the Further Education (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, the Department is required to maintain and publish a list of recognised institutions of further education. Since this list doesn't appear in your publication scheme and I can't find it on your Web site, please could you send me the contents of this list?

Thanks in advance.

Ben Harris

Dear McAleese, Paul,

Thank you for the information. I'd found the list of colleges on your Web site, but it wasn't clear that it was the full list of recognised institutions. In England there are a bunch of adult-education charities that are designated FE institutions and I thought something analogous might apply in Northern Ireland. Thank you for confirming that it doesn't.

Yours sincerely,

Ben Harris
