Show Summary Details

Quick Reference


In 1991 local TECs took over the work of the Manpower Services Commission in administering the government budget for vocational training at a local level, with the aim of giving all school‐leavers at 16 the opportunity for vocational education and training. Representatives of local businesses and the local authority made up the majority on the TEC's executive board, with minimal representation of those involved in local educational provision. In Scotland the equivalent organization was known as the Local Enterprise Company (LEC). TECs were replaced in 2001 by local Learning and Skills Councils, although many of the same personnel were retained.

Subjects: Education.
