For instance, Roger Ward, the then Chief Executive of the Polytechnics and Colleges Employers' Forum, came to our conference in Cheltenham in 1994 and pronounced that this Association did not have a future, and that we should amalgamate with one of the other professional associations.In fact, he also stated that there was only need for one union for education in this country.Bearing in mind that this Association has developed and is continually valued by the government and the DfES for its careful and sensible approach to many issues that we get involved in, I wonder what Mr. Ward would say if he were here now?

LEAF's efforts to draw attention to the behaviour of Roger Ward of the CEF/AOC were significant in his removal. It is a little known fact that John Cryer MP (Hornchurch), whose Parliamentary debate was instrumental in bringing Ward before the Select Committee, shares his constituency with Havering College!
Appendix 51 – January 1998, 1 Jan 1998 [cached]
Members of the Select Committee have been sent copies of Mr Ward's suggestions separately.
The Minister and Mr Ward, to many observers, appeared to be "two men in one suit". The coincidence of their views appeared to be attributable to factors other than chance. Documentary evidence supplied with this submission, we believe, supports that contention. Our firm belief is that Mr Ward, the Chief Executive of the CEF, was a "placeman" and was simply voicing the views of the Government and in particular, the minister responsible for further education. The connection between the CEF and Government Ministers is highlighted in a document circulated by the Polytechnics and Colleges Employers' Forum, an organisation from which the Colleges Employers' Forum evolved. Indeed these organisations had the same person as Chief Executive, namely, Mr Roger Ward, who was made a CBE in the 1995 New Years Honours. In a circular to College Principals and Chairs of Governing Bodies, dated 10 December 1991, under the auspices of the PCEF, the Chief Executive, Mr Roger Ward, comments upon the role of the Treasury in influencing pay and conditions and the implications of the transfer of employer upon the funding mechanism. He also explicitly sets out the policy to be adopted by the Government, in particular the use of "holdback". In paragraph 18 of the circular, Mr Ward predicts the Governments response when colleges are transferred.
In that letter, the Principal suggests that the views and opinions of the members of the CEF (i.e., the corporations), have been manipulated or ignored in order that Roger Ward's own objectives can be met. She goes on to say that, "if we do not respond we shall soon find that Mr Ward (our employee) is managing both us and our Colleges.
Once again Mr Ward and the CEF appear to be at the bottom of this development. Recent press reports, which unusually for Mr Ward, have gone unchallenged, suggest that he actively sought endorsement from the minister of the day for a single agency in the sector-Education Lecturing Services.
It is important to recognise the full extent of the impact of the agency scenario, which is linked to Mr Ward and the CEF/AoC boards. Many colleges continue to insist that all (or a substantial proportion) of their part-time staff, submit to a closed-agency arrangement, such as the ELS. For example, in December 1997, North Hertfordshire College declared its intention to achieve a 70-30 split between those employed by the college and those employed by an agency. There have been recently been 40 redundancies at this college, which took effect on 1 January 1998. We wish to make the Committee aware of the concerted action of many colleges, under Mr Ward's influence, to implement a closed-agency policy for part-time staff. Often this is achieved under the threat of dismissal or after being dismissed. Education Lecturing Services and Nord Anglia feature prominently in this scenario.
The principal influence upon the nature and stance of the CEF/AoC has been that of Roger Ward. The ramifications of his influence on policy/advice/methodology are dendritic in their insidious influence, the full effect of which we feel is yet to be revealed.
Ward has engendered among many of them the "Captain Bligh" approach to human resource management. 'The advice it seems, is to "keep up the flogging until morale improves". THE IMPACT OF THE CHANGE OF EMPLOYER ON TEACHER MOTIVATION, PROSPECTS AND REMUNERATION The earlier sections of this submission have attempted to set out a chronology of events leading to the change of employer. It has also concerned, in the main, the impact of the changes upon staff. We hope that the Select Committee will not consider this simple as self-interest. The effects of the changes to the terms and conditions of staff, together with the encouragement of a management style by Mr Ward which is more befitting to Attila the Hun is at the very core of the problems; not the only problem, but a very significant problem.
The majority accepted their new status gleefully and set about their tasks (carefully laid down for them by Mr Ward of the CEF), with gusto.
