From education to employment

IfL reveals Advisory Council election results

Results for the Institute for Learning’s (IfL) new Advisory Council were announced today, reflecting the changes and scope of the independent professional body for teachers and trainers across FE and skills.

“I am delighted to congratulate and welcome the newly elected members of our new Advisory Council, which will be in place from January 2010,” commented IfL’s chair, Sue Crowley.

“Our new governance structure allows increased member representation and a greater focus on policy matters. It also gives membership to partner organisations, selected to cover the diversity of the further education and skills sector.”

The council is made up of three categories:

Representatives elected by IfL members, fellows and associates, with seats reserved for equality, diversity, different parts of the sector and geographical regions.
Stakeholder representatives from organisations chosen for their FE and skills focus.
Observers nominated by their government department or organisation, to act in a non-voting capacity.
