STUC welcomes review of governance in University sector

June 16th 2011

Commenting on the announcement today by the Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning in the Scottish Parliament, Scottish Trades Unions Congress (STUC) General Secretary Grahame Smith said:

“The STUC welcomes the cabinet secretary’s commitment to conduct a review of governance in the University sector. The STUC has long been concerned about governance structures in both the University and College sectors, the weakness of which means there is often little scrutiny of how public money is spent by individual institutions. We are pleased that the Scottish Government is now looking into this issue in higher education and look forward to playing an active part in this review.”
