Government’s FE Reform Agenda

The Skills and Post-16 Education bill will be presented for it's second reading in the House of Lords on Tuesday 15 May 2021. The full text of the bill can be found here.

This Bill is a recognition of the central role the college sector will need to play if our economy is to bounce back. AoC has long been calling for FE and skills reform, to ensure colleges have the authority and autonomy to deliver for people, employers and communities. This is a step towards many of these reforms.
