Small business representatives could be ousted from their places on the governing bodies of local further education colleges under a government proposal, according to Sunday Business (p28).

The move, part of a shake-up of FE college governance after a series of financial and management scandals, has prompted protests from the colleges and business representatives.

It would see the number of governors drawn from local business reduced from a majority, usually two-thirds, to no more than one-third. They will be replaced by representatives from the local authority, staff, students and community organisations.
