Post-16 Education and Apprenticeship Levy Funding – Next steps for English Devolution
NCFE and the Campaign for Learning are proud to launch a new paper, ‘Post-16 Education and 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; Joe Dromey, Kevin Gilmartin, Julian Gravatt, Ewart Keep, Susan Pember, Mick Fletcher and Alan Palmer.
The focus for the paper 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 what issues will need to be considered for students, providers and policymakers.
Michael Lemin, Policy and Research Manager at NCFE yesterday said:
“We’re delighted to publish our latest paper in partnership with Campaign for Learning. This pamphlet considers next steps for the devolution of post- 16 education and apprenticeship levy funding. More specifically, it is a contribution to the debate on the government’s reviews of Post- 18 Education and Funding and the UK Apprenticeship Levy, to the work of various commissions on adult education, and to Labour’s second consultation on the National Education Service.
The range of views articulated shine a light on the complexities regarding devolved funding, and we expect that this subject will be the centre of much debate in the coming years.”
Julia Wright, National Director, Campaign for Learning yesterday said:
“Given the complexity of the post-16 education system and the scale of the budgets, we believe a focused debate on next steps for devolution of this area is crucial. We are grateful to our contributors for setting out their thinking and we trust their excellent analysis and the points and issues they raise will inform discussions going forward.”
