ESFA to Run AEB Allocations Review for Colleges

The government has announced that colleges facing cuts to their national adult education budget allocations due to underdelivery during Covid will have their funding reviewed. The review of ESFA-funded AEB allocations for 2023/24 is planned for colleges and other grant-funded providers that have experienced a significant boost in delivery this year following drops in adult learner numbers over the previous two years. The ESFA has now promised to review those affected this November. Click here for FE Week commentary and here for the official government information.
