Government to push through college improvements

The £2.3 billion scheme funded by the Learning and Skills Council has stalled amid rumours of overspends (AJ 22.01.09). Decisions on 22 projects have been postponed until March and architects have been warned the application process will become longer.

Andrew Foster, former chief executive of the Audit Commission, is understood to have been appointed by the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills to speed up approvals.
