9 Draft principles for the new NIS in outline only …. concentrating on capacity to improve 1. focus on each learner 2. governance is the key to self-improvement, self-regulation 3. no provider ever satisfied with current level of performance 4. every single member of staff is a professional 5. use sector expertise to improve individual providers 6. sector to organise to give authoritative advice on policy

10 Implications for colleges continuity with your current programmes for now, but… LSIS will be different, building on new NIS principles… sector-led; with sector-directed grant, continuing dialogue using more (and paying for) sector expertise, and… working closely with partners governance and peer support likely to be key programmes full consultation on new NIS & LSIS direction, in December second consultation on strategies and activities Tell us what you think!
