Written Statement - Public Good and a Prosperous Wales – Next steps

Kirsty Williams, Cabinet Secretary for Education

I have today published the Welsh Government's Technical Consultation ‘Public Good and a Prosperous Wales – the next steps’, outlining in more detail our proposals for the structure and operation of the new Tertiary Education and Research Commission for Wales.

The consultation provides details of proposals for the next steps in the reform of the PCET sector in Wales following the report by Professor Hazelkorn in 2016.

The consultation will be open for 12 weeks until 17 July and I encourage all stakeholders to respond to our more detailed proposals.

It is critical that we hear from learners, leaders and practitioners on how post-compulsory education and training meets their needs, and can be an even greater force for social mobility and national prosperity.

It must involve the education sector as a whole, business, learners and all who have an interest in making our post-compulsory education and training system the very best that it can be.
