Cuts: Labour and further education colleges

Yesterday’s Observer published confidential papers that show plans for £350m of further education cuts in 2010/11.

The paper listed options including:

- Cutting by 10% of the funding of adult apprenticeships.

- Delaying the introduction of "skills accounts".

- Reducing funding for Train to Gain scheme.

I hope FE colleges are preparing for the future whoever wins the election.
