The Student Loans Company (SLC) welcomes the government’s white paper on skills for employment and proposed policy reforms, which include the introduction of a right to lifelong learning and the transition to post-qualification admission.
In response to the release of the white paper, SLC asked Derek Ross, currently Executive Director of Operations, to step into the role of Executive Director of HE and FE Policy Reform.
David Wallace, Deputy Managing Director and Chief Client Officer, SLC, said: “The reforms outlined in the Skills for Jobs white paper have the potential to fundamentally change student finances and, therefore, the way they are implemented. work by SLC.
“These proposals are released as SLC begins to implement transformational change; this new role within my team allows SLC to focus on responding to potentially important reforms, while respecting the existing political priorities of our shareholders.
“The SLC will play a key role in all early discussions, giving us the opportunity to actively shape how reforms are implemented. We intend to support the government to ensure that these proposals take a holistic view of how any change could affect our customers, colleagues, processes and technology and Derek’s extensive experience of SLC customer operations means he is well placed to support me in this activity.
Derek Ross, SLC’s current Executive Director of Operations, will assume the new role over the next few months, during which time SLC will recruit a new Executive Director to lead its direction of operations.
