Minister’s letter confirms area review consultant funding.

‘Skills Minister Nick Boles has confirmed that consultancy grants of £50k or £100k will be available to support colleges to implement area review recommendations, in a letter sent to all colleges and training providers ahead of the Easter break.

The letter is the first written confirmation from the government that the cash, which was first revealed by FE Week following a presentation by the Skills Minister at an Association of Colleges (Aoc) event on March 2, is on offer.

“We are putting in place a support package to assist you with implementing the reviews’ recommendations,” Mr Boles wrote in the letter.

“At the AoC event, I announced that we will provide £50K or £100k of transition grant funding for each substantive area review recommendation to support colleges in accessing the skills and capacity needed,” he continued.’ – FE Week
