TIMES HIGHER EDUCATION: DfE hires finance expert to advise on university collapses

  • Andrew Westwood

Press/Media: Expert comment

Description

Andy Westwood, professor of government practice at the University of Manchester, said that this expressed “an expectation that these [the post-18 review and the spending review] are likely to make things worse for those institutions already suffering in the current regime, but also perhaps a tacit admission that a different regime is on its way”.

The OfS’ “uber regulatory-market model always looked slightly out of place the minute that Theresa May started talking about reforming post-18 [education] when she became prime minister”, he added.
