Landmark move allows institutions to take significant step forward in higher education provision. FE colleges will be able to offer their own foundation degrees for the first time in a landmark step towards institutions obtaining full degree-awarding powers. NCG - formerly known as Newcastle College Group - has been granted foundation degree-awarding powers, following lengthy scrutiny by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA). New College Durham has also been given the green light. TES Newspaper on 5 August, 2011 | By: Stephen Exley
