The HE Byte

Isle of Man Consultations

In the autumn of 2017 the Isle of Man government consulted on major changes to EHE as part of a proposed new Education Bill. At the end of January (2019) a draft Bill was published with significant changes proposed in many areas including EHE. At the same time they launched a further public consultation focussed “on those aspects which have changed significantly” since the 2017 consultation.

This consultation is now closed.
