TRANSFEROR CHURCHES WELCOME NEW EDUCATION ARRANGEMENTS
The following statement was issued by the TRC yesterday, Wednesday 16 November 2011:
The Transferor Representative Council (TRC), whose membership is made up from the Presbyterian, Methodist and Church of Ireland Boards of Education, welcome today’s announcement by the First Minister and deputy First Minister and the significant progress that has been made in arriving at an agreed and inclusive framework for the establishment of a single Education and Skills Authority for Northern Ireland.
In particular the Transferors welcome the fact that their existing legal rights have been both acknowledged and protected. This, alongside the establishment for the first time of a sectoral support body for controlled schools, to mirror a similar body for maintained schools, will provide a firm and equitable basis to move forward in dealing with so many of the educational challenges that lie ahead.
