The recent demise of the South Thames Tec and the future role for the local training and enterprise companies is discussed in an article in the FT (p10).

The article says Tecs (and Lecs in Scotland) have been given a conflicting message from the government. They are essentially private companies, yet they face public scrutiny and auditing.

The local quangos are also ultimately subject to central government control and have unclear rules on financial transactions.

The feature concludes that no-one really knows who carries the can when something goes wrong and calls for the government to review the operations of Tecs and Lecs.
