FE Guild to replace LSIS

12 December 2012

Confirmation that the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS) will close by August 2013 has caused concern amongst many that the services they offer will also be withdrawn. Whilst technically accurate, the establishment of the Further Education (FE) Guild will mean there is limited practical impact.

The FE Guild will be a single body responsible for setting professional standards and codes of behaviour, as well as developing qualifications. Proposals for the Guild’s creation have effectively rendered the LSIS redundant, as services such as training, leadership and management traditionally offered by LSIS are expected to fall within the remit of the Guild. Full details of the Guild are not yet known as it is still in consultation, however it is expected to be up and running in time for the LSIS closure.

So for the time being, things will remain the same but who knows what the New Year will bring…
