‘Area reviews need to take account of all types of providers involved in FE and skills delivery’
Following a report published by the NAO this morning on financial stability in the FE sector (http://bit.ly/1Iek4FO), BIS has announced that it is formally launching a series of area reviews primarily concerned with the future provision of FE colleges and sixth form colleges in different parts of the country (http://bit.ly/1gK4hEw).
The SFA has announced that it will pay over-delivery and ‘credible’ growth requests for Apprenticeships for the year 2014-15. Subject to confirmation, AELP believes that providers have until P15 to make a valid claim.
As members of the SFA’s Localism and ESIF External Advisory Group, AELP recently attended the latest meeting to receive updates on both the closing down of 2007-13 and the procurement of 2014-20. Members can find links to the minutes and associated documents below.
