Maths & English in the Spending Review


Providers of 16-19 education will receive £400 million additional funding in 2020/2021, including £35m for targeted interventions to support GCSE maths and English resit learners. The advanced maths premium, which adds £600 to college budgets for every additional student who takes on A and AS level maths, will be funded with an additional £10 million.

There will also be an additional £10m for ESOL provision to fund the second wave of the integration-areas programme, as part of the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government’s settlement for 2020-21.

Colleges and school sixth forms will also get £120 million to help deliver expensive subjects such as engineering which lead to higher wages and, ultimately, a more productive economy.

Colleges and further education providers will receive an extra £25 million to deliver T Levels, which will be rolled out from  September 2020.
