NCFE and the Campaign for Learning have launched a new paper, ‘Post-16 Education and Apprenticeship Levy Funding: next steps for English devolution’ – a volume of expert pieces that consider the future of the post-16 education and training budget from a devolution perspective.
The pamphlet has contributions from well known experts in post-16 education, and its focus is the £27.8bn post-16 education and training budget excluding capital spending. The authors look at the arguments for and against devolving post-16 budgets, and at what issues will need to be considered for students, providers and policymakers.
The contributions are:
- Joe Dromey, Learning and Work Institute on Devolving 16-18 Education and Apprenticeship Levy Funding
- Kevin Gilmartin, Association of School and College Leaders on Devolving 16-18 Education Funding: Issues for School Sixth Forms
- Julian Gravatt, Association of Colleges on Devolving 16-18 Education Funding: Issues for FE and Sixth Form Colleges
- Ewart Keep, SKOPE, University of Oxford on Devolving Apprenticeship Levy Funding: Issues for Policy Makers
- Susan Pember, HOLEX on Devolving Post-16 Funding: Lessons from the Adult Education Budget
