Yes, staff employed by further education corporations who are eligible for the LGPS will continue to be so if the further education body becomes a subsidiary company of a higher education institution and they are designated by their employer (either individually or on the basis that they belong to a group of employees designated) as being eligible for the LGPS.

[1] This is set out in Regulation 3 and Part 2 of Schedule 2 of the Local Government Pension Scheme Regulations 2013 http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2013/2356/contents/made
