(3) Where F25 [ an education and training board ] proposes to withdraw designated status from a designated local voluntary youth work organisation under this section, it shall inform the organisation by notice in writing that—

( a) a withdrawal of designated status is being considered, and

( b) the reasons for the proposed withdrawal,

and the organisation may, within the next 21 days beginning on the date when the notice is given, or such longer period as F25 [ the education and training board ] may determine, make representations to the Assessor of Youth Work giving reasons why, in its view, the proposed withdrawal is not warranted.

(4) The Assessor of Youth Work shall consider any representation under subsection (3) and make a recommendation to F25 [ the education and training board ] on the matter.

(5) Where F25 [ an education and training board ], having considered the recommendation made by the Assessor of Youth Work under subsection (4), decides by resolution to withdraw designated status from an organisation it shall, by notice in writing, inform the organisation of such withdrawal and the reasons for the withdrawal.
