Joint Report of the Chief Executive and the Director of Education, Leisure and Lifelong Learning
Following recommendations from the earlier Joint Education, Skills and Culture and Cabinet Scrutiny Committees, Cabinet Members requested the following additional decisions be made, as shown at decisions No. 2 and 3 below.
1. That the Leader of Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council write to the Chair of the Education through Regional Working (ERW) Joint Committee in terms of the draft letter, as detailed at Appendix 2 to the circulated report,
2. That a report be brought to a joint meeting of the Education, Skills and Culture and Cabinet Scrutiny Committees if/when any significant change/s occur on the factors that have led to decision No. 1 above,
3. That prior to the expiry of the notice period, a full report be brought to a joint meeting of the Education, Skills and Culture and Cabinet Scrutiny Committees addressing all issues as a consequence of the Council exiting the Education through Regional Working (ERW) consortium.
Reason for Decisions:
To address the deficiencies in current arrangements surrounding the regional school improvement consortium.
Implementation of Decisions:
The decisions are for immediate implementation. The Chair of the Joint Scrutiny Committee had agreed to this course of action, there would therefore be no call in of these decisions.
