In 1993, further education colleges in Scotland were removed from the control of local authorities and became independent corporate bodies, funded directly by central government. Under the Further and Higher Education Act 1992, Colleges were given full financial independence, together with full powers to own assets, employ staff, enter into contracts, and determine the supply of services. Perth College’s corporate status was conferred by the relevant statues, in particular the Further and Higher Education (Scotland) Act 1992 and 2005. Instruments and articles of government can be accessed here.
Perth College is an Academic Partner of the University of the Highlands and Islands which was conferred by the relevant statutes including the Education Reform Act 1988, Further and Higher Education (Scotland) Act 1992 and 2005. University of the Highlands and Islands attained Taught Degree Awarding Powers in 2008 and University Title in 2010. The QAA website provides guidance on the process and standards for Taught Degree Awarding Powers and University title.
