Change of policy welcomed on funding for employees taught outside the workplace

The Education and Skills Funding Agency has confirmed a significant change in policy regarding funding for training outside of the workplace.

Courses for people in employment are once again allowed to use public funding, so long as they are taught outside the workplace. Training in the workplace is not typically funded from the Adult Education Budget, but the sector kicked up a stink after the ESFA announced new rules for 2017/18 that went even further.

Full details of the announcement can be found on the FE Week website
