Around £11 million of cash to support higher technical education provision has been withheld by the Department for Education. In March the DfE announced that 63 providers had won part of the £32 million higher technical education skills injection fund, designed to help providers invest in equipment, resources and training for delivering the qualifications. However in a recent update, the DfE said that only £21 million of the fund will go towards supporting around 85 providers this financial year. Click here for FE Week commentary.
