Still no news on the AEB allocations

The results of the first ever procurement process for the adult education budget results were expected to be published after the general election on June 8, but, nearly two weeks after the election, the ESFA is still not saying when it will publish the much anticipated AEB results.

It is thought around 500 training providers have applied for a share of the AEB, which totals around £1.5 billion.

But only around £250 million of the budget was actually up for grabs through the tendering process, because colleges, local authorities and universities – which contract with the ESFA through a grant funding agreement – were not affected by recent changes and therefore did not have to tender.
