Tutor budget blunder left UCE struggling

  • Comment

Bosses at the University of Central England (UCE) failed to provide architecture staff with an agreed budget for visiting tutors at the beginning of the disastrous 2003/04 academic year, the AJ can reveal.

A source has claimed the cataclysmic failure rate was partially explained by the fact that no one on the staff - neither tutors nor lecturers - was in a position to decide how much external assistance could be brought in.

'It was an incredible situation that no one knew what was going on and who we could afford to bring in - it was extremely frustrating, ' the source said.

'There was a lack of communication between those in power and those that were not. It was weird that those in power in the vice-chancellor's office did not seem to understand what was required to ensure that the school was a success.

'And even when the vicechancellor produced the report on the whole debacle, there was no mention that there might be some blame from the centre, ' the source added.
