National schools commissioner Sir David Carter to step down

The national schools commissioner will retire from the civil service at the end of this academic year, he has announced. Sir David Carter, who has served in the role since February 2016, will step down at the end of August. In a video message recorded to announce his retirement, Carter described “the most amazing, brilliant leadership journey” and “a role that I feel incredibly privileged to have the opportunity to undertake”. I’ve never had a holiday in term time, and September this year will be the first opportunity to do that However, he does not “intend to disappear from the system” and still wants to “play a role” with multi-academy trusts in the future. “I believe passionately in that model. I believe passionately in the CEOs and the leaders who make such a difference to children’s lives, and I want to work with those leaders to help them fulfil the ambitions that they’ve set for themselves, but also for the children that they’re responsible for,” he said. He also paid tribute to his colleagues in the regional schools commissioners team, saying he was “hugely proud” to have been a part of it and was leaving at a time “when they’re...

Private school fees rise again, and 5 more findings from the ISC Census

Private school fees have increased again, new data published by the Independent Schools Council reveals. The ISC, a membership organisation for 1,326 private schools which counts Harrow, Eton, Westminster and Rugby among its members, has today published the results of its annual census. Schools Week has the key findings: 1. Private school fees rise again Fees for private schools rose by 3.4 per cent on average between 2017 and 2018, having crept up by the same percentage the year before that too. However, this is the lowest increase in fees since 1994. The average private school fees is now £4,535 per term in a day school, or £13,605 a year. Eighteen schools charge less than £2,000 and 22 charge more than £7,000 per term, “reflecting the diverse offering in ISC schools”, says the report. There are now 529,164 pupils at ISC schools, up 1.2 per cent from last year and the highest level since records began in 1974. 2. More than 90% of pupils pay full fees Only eight per cent of pupils received some sort of reduction on their fees, which the ISC claims is worth around £1 billion. This includes scholarships for various talents and abilities, and bursaries or means-tested...

UCU blasts 10% pay rises for ‘greedy’ college principals

College principals have been lambasted as “greedy and hopelessly out of touch” by the University and College Union, after new analysis showed a third enjoyed a pay rise of more than 10 per cent in 2016/17. Data on last year’s college accounts was released this morning by the Department for Education. It revealed that 17 principals earned salaries of over £200,000, and the union’s analysis of the 220 colleges included in the data found that 81 (37 per cent) gave their principal a bumper pay rise of more than 10 per cent. These massive raises are all the more controversial, given that college staff across the country have been driven to strike action after they were offered a measly a one-per-cent increase of their own. The union also pointed out that several colleges – including the likes of Hull College Group and Bradford College, both of which are planning huge job cuts – were not included in the data raising “serious concerns” about accountability. Vision West Nottinghamshire College, whose principal was paid £275,000 in 2015/16, was also omitted from today’s release. The accounts data can include pay for more than one post-holder because of ongoing mergers across the country –...

People 1st collapses, stunning the FE sector

People 1st, once a major sector skills council and a key player in the apprenticeship reforms, has entered administration, FE Week can reveal. This is a stunning blow for the retail, hospitality and travel industries in the apprenticeship system. The employment and learning consultancy charity confirmed this morning that it has been placed into the hands of administrator FRP Advisory. FE Week further confirmed the news with a heartbroken senior member of staff, who asked to remain anonymous. “I have been made redundant and have had to go to the Job Centre today,” they said. People 1st was once the employer-led sector skills council for hospitality, passenger transport, travel and tourism in the UK, responsible for developing and managing apprenticeship standards. Amongst its other duties the organisation acted as the external quality-assurance body for the following popular standards: The body developed the content and assessment plans for many of these standards, and its logo appears prominently on the assessment plans (see an example below). But government funding for every SSC ended six years ago, which meant they all had to find ways of surviving alone. This factor is believed to have been the biggest single cause of its downfall.
