Statement of Outcomes - Joint Scrutiny Group of Council and Senate (15 June 2009)
The Scrutiny Group established by the Council and Senate of Cardiff University to review recent proposals for changes to the Centre for Lifelong Learning has met for the first time (12 June 2009).
The Scrutiny Group is currently at the information gathering stage of the process. In addition to reviewing the Business Case laid before the last meeting of the University Council, the Scrutiny Group also today (12 June 2009) received a paper from the Cardiff Branch of University and College Union proposing alternative approaches to the current business case. It will consider this paper in more detail at its next meeting, when it has also agreed to receive a delegation from the ‘Campaign to Save the Humanities in the Centre for Lifelong Learning’.
Additionally the Scrutiny Group has requested that alternative options are developed by University Officers for consideration by the Scrutiny Group in order that the Group might understand in some detail whether there are any financially sustainable models that would lead to maintaining some reduced humanities provision within the CHOICES programme.
The Scrutiny Group will meet again on 23rd June and hopes to finalise its work at a third meeting on 6th July 2009.
