The aim of this paper is to welcome the steps that have already been taken by the coalition government to set colleges free from central regulation and to urge the government to go further and faster. Our proposals align closely with the principles outlined in the government's white paper about public services, which was published just as we were going to print. At the heart of this white paper is the notion of improving public services by enabling choice and control for individuals and neighbourhoods. In their foreword, the prime minister and deputy prime minister say they want to make opportunity more equal and that they believe that the old, centralised approach to public service delivery is broken. Embedded throughout the white paper are five core principals : choice, decentralisation, diversity, fairness and accountability. We fully support these principles; they strengthen our arguments for a truly demand-led system, with entitlement for loans and funding for all who seek it.
