This education policy briefing looked at how to fund future skills training. You can watch the video here.
One of the big challenges facing the Chancellor is how to fund and provide for future skills training at a time when needs are growing and resources are limited. Should employers be expected to contribute more, such as through the apprenticeship levy? Should individuals be expected to pay more through fee loans and maintenance support? Should funding be re-distributed from HE to support high-level skills training in FE?
