Franchising in Post-16 Education. Coombe Lodge Report.
Evans, Geraldine; And Others
Coombe Lodge Report, v22 n9 1992
This document contains eight papers in which the principals of eight U.S. and British postsecondary institutions describe the franchising negotiations and arrangements into which their schools have entered. Franchising arrangements at a wide variety of postsecondary institutions are discussed, including community colleges, polytechnics, further education (FE) colleges, and schools in a local education authority (LEA) that offer courses funded by Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC) awards. Equally as diverse are the types of franchising arrangements described, including the establishment of a university center at a community college in the absence of a university in the immediate vicinity and an "up-and-down" arrangement in which one FE college developed franchising arrangements both with a polytechnic and with local schools. After a foreword by Susan Leather, the following papers are included: "Franchising Higher Education: The Rochester Community College Experience of Building a University Centre" (Geraldine Evans); "Negotiating Franchising Arrangements" (Raymond Smith); "BTEC in Schools: The Issues Involved" (Brian Cue); "BTEC in Schools: An LEA Scheme" (Barbara Molog); "BTEC in Schools: The Relationship between Schools and FE" (Robert Hughes); "Franchising Higher Education Activity at Polytechnic South West" (Ian Turnbridge); "Higher Education Franchising at Somerset College of Arts and Technology" (Richard Dimbleby); and "Franchising: Some Issues and Concerns" (Susan Leather).
