College of education
FOIA Schedule I Part IV includes:
- 55 - (1) The governing body of—
- (b) a college of education in respect of which grants are paid under Article 66(2) or (3) of the Education and Libraries (Northern Ireland) Order 1986, or (amended by Colleges of Education (Northern Ireland) Order 2005)
- (2) In sub-paragraph (1) “governing body” has the meaning given by Article 30(3) of the Education and Libraries (Northern Ireland) Order 1993.
Article 66 provides for the Department of Education and the Department for Employment and Learning to pay grants for the training of teachers. It seems that the only colleges of education in Northern Ireland became university colleges in 1999, and hence are covered as universities.
