Can further education corporations established under the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 validly execute deeds other than under common seal?

A further education corporation validly established under the Further and Higher Education Act 1992 (FHEA 1992) is an exempt charity for the purposes of Schedule 3 to the Charities Act 2011 (FHEA 1992, s 22A). See Commentary: Charitable status of a further education corporation: Halsbury’s Laws of England [654]. This means that it does not fall within the regulatory control of the Charity Commission, rather, it falls within the control of its primary regulator to ensure compliance with Charity Law. In the case of further education (FE) colleges, the principle regulator is the Department of Education. See Practice Note: Regulation of exempt
