Description

In this week’s show, Skills World Live presenter Tom Bewick, looks at the impact of the recent Budget and Spending Review for FE and skills.

The Department for Education says the three year settlement for FE will result in a 26 per cent real terms increase on levels invested in 2019.

However, analysis by the Learning and Work Institute has found that by 2025, spending will still be on average, £750 million less on FE than it was in 2010.

There is a special segment looking at the ongoing controversy of the Level 3 qualifications review, including analysis of education questions in the House of Commons on Monday; and later in the week, the appearance of the education secretary and DfE perm sec, at the Education Select Committee.

Featuring in this week’s episode:

Nadhim Zahawi MP, Secretary of State for Education
Susan Acland Hood, Perm Sec, DfE
Vera Hobhouse MP, Liberal Democrat
Robert Halfon MP, chair of the Education Select Committee
Alun Francis, Principal of Oldham College and Deputy Chair, Social Mobility Commission
Stephen Evans, Chief executive, Learning and Work Institute
