Annual report and financial statements 2010-11
published: 14 Jul 2011
This Annual Report covers the 2010-11 financial year. Two months into 2010-11, on 2 June 2010, the Secretary of State for Education announced that the coalition Government intended to introduce primary legislation which would lead to the abolition of the GTC.
At the time of writing (June 2011), that draft legislation, the Education Bill, is under consideration by Parliament. The Department for Education and GTC are planning for the abolition of the GTC on 31 March 2012. It is important though to restate that, at the time of submission of this report, the GTCE remains an independent public corporation charged with a range of statutory functions which it will continue to fulfil to the best of its ability and until the will of Parliament has been enacted.
