Post-16 alphabet soup – who survives and how?

Maybe I was naive but I thought we might learn today something of the new regulatory landscape in post-16 education. However, today's quango hit list merely notes on the Young People’s Learning Agency:

Under Consideration - Subject to education structural reforms

I thought that the Skills Funding Agency and Higher Education Funding Council might merge. It was in the Liberal Democrat manifesto. But according to the Times Education Supplement this is now unlikely. Vince Cable has changed his mind. On today’s list HEFC survives as a quango.

So maybe the YPLA and the SFA may merge? The SFA was not mentioned on today’s list as it is an Executive Agency rather than a quango.
