First class expenses?

It was only a matter of time before Freedom of Information requests would reveal that college managers had – shock, horror - claimed expenses.

The Hinckley Times found that the principal of North Warwickshire and Hinckley College had claimed expenses for first class train fares and a trip to Canada when she was invited, with a student, to be part of the Calgary 2009 Premiere Experience by UK Skills.

It’s hardly a duck house. In fact, it sounds bona fide. But it is a reminder that colleges (and others working in public services) need to manage potential risks to their reputations.
