Further Education in 2020 a Prospectus for change

Earlier this month we released an our "agenda for change" document highlighting some of the key areas where change was needed within further education. Today we are releasing a supplementary document, our prospectus for change, which builds on some of the information in the original but provides additional background research and detail.

These asks are intended to enable the FE sector to plan and perform more effectively, to increase its financial resilience, and to improve the alignment between FE and the Government's productivity agenda and industrial strategy. The asks relate to four broad themes.

  • Adult funding
  • Capital funding
  • Technical education and T Levels
  • Apprenticeships

We hope that this document is useful as part of a wider conversation about how the further education sector can thrive and succeed within this decade and beyond.
