Phase One

mediumPhase One of the Review took place between May and December 2012. The REC sought funding from grant giving trusts and member organisations to enable the work to take place; no government funding was made available. A Project Manager was appointed, the REC's Curriculum, Qualifications and Assessment Committee was enlarged so that it could act as the project's Steering Group, Expert Panel members were recruited, assembled evidence from a wide range of contributors and research sources, consulted with the Reference Group. Following this they went out to public consultation and produced a report to give a basis for the next phase of the Review.
