The Education and Skills Funding Agency has announced a boost on top of earnings for provision in non-devolved areas in 6 sector subject areas, including ICT for Practitioners.
New funding rates for adult provision from academic year 2024 to 2025 will mean that the funding rate for digital skills qualifications will be increased.
A key recommendation in this new report from the Labour Party is that adults should be entitled to free digital skills courses up to level 2, in line with the equivalent English and maths entitlements.
