star this property answer text <p>The government recognises that studying part-time and later in life can bring considerable benefits for individuals, employers and the wider economy. The Review of Post-18 Education and Funding will look, as part of its broad remit, at how we can encourage learning that is more flexible, like part-time, distance learning and commuter study options.</p><p>In order for everyone to benefit from higher education (HE), we have adopted a number of measures to support part-time and mature students and this academic year, part-time students will - for the first time ever - be able to access full-time equivalent maintenance loans.</p><p>Evidence also shows that shorter degree courses appeal particularly to mature students who want to retrain and enter the workplace more quickly than a traditional course would permit. The government recently published its consultation response on proposed fee cap increases for accelerated degrees through a change in regulations. We believe this will incentivise expanded provision by more providers of a greater range of accelerated degree subjects, allowing both more students and providers to realise the benefits of this form of study.</p><p>Furthermore, the Higher Education and Research Act 2017 established the Office for Students (OfS), as a regulator of HE in England. The act placed a general duty on the OfS in performing its functions, to have regard to the need to promote greater choice in the provision of HE. This choice includes the means of provision, such as part-time or distance learning. The OfS targets an element of the Teaching Grant to recognise the additional costs of part-time study. £72 million was made available in academic year 2017/18 and the same amount was allocated in academic year 2018/19, for this purpose.</p><p>Within my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State’s guidance, we have also asked the OfS and the Director for Fair Access and Participation to encourage providers to consider the different barriers that mature learners can face in their Access and Participation Plans. This covers access to, success in, as well as progress from HE.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>We are pleased that employers are choosing to move to our new, higher quality apprenticeship offer to make a sustainable investment in the skills that they need to grow. Employers are designing higher level apprenticeships that take longer and require more off-the-job training and, while this is something to be welcomed, we are conscious of the challenges it presents.</p><p> </p><p>In 2019-20, funding available for investment in apprenticeships in England will be over £2.5 billion, this is double what was spent in 2010-11. The apprenticeship budget is set in advance by Her Majesty’s Treasury for the current spending review period. Currently, we expect to be within budget in the 2018-19 and 2019-20 financial years. We continue to monitor the trend of increasing spending on apprenticeships and to make use of our engagement with employers in addition to all available data from the programme to inform forecasts of demand and future costs.</p><p> </p><p>The level of funding for the programme beyond 2020 will be determined by the forthcoming Spending Review announced by my right hon. Friend, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in his Spring Statement.</p><p><em><br> </em></p>
