In July 2015, the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills and Department for Education set out the government’s approach to facilitating a restructuring of post-16 education and training institutions through a series of area based reviews of provision. Each wave of area based reviews will aim to create more financially stable and efficient providers with improved collaboration across the different types of institution. Following each wave of review, institutions will be required to implement substantive recommendations. In order to support this implementation process, the Government has announced the availability of a restructuring facility and transition grant fund to assist with the development and implementation of the recommendations.
