answer text <p>School sixth forms used to be funded at a higher rate than colleges. In 2011/12 the Government made a deliberate decision to end this disparity so that, by 2015, schools and colleges would be funded at the same level as each other for similar programmes.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>We reduced the funding for enrichment activities for all full-time students in order to protect funding for activities that led to qualifications.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Starting in academic year 2013/14 we moved from a system of funding per qualification to funding per student. Institutions are now funded for, on average, 600 teaching hours per year per full-time student. We put into place formula protection funding until 2015/16 so no provider would lose any funding as a result of the formula change.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>From academic year 2014/15, we reduced the funding for 18-year-olds in full-time education. This will apply to all elements of the formula, except the extra support for disadvantaged students without a GCSE grade C or above in English or mathematics, and students with a learning difficulty assessment or a statement of special educational needs.</p><p> </p>

answer text <p /> <p>We are reforming the further education (FE) and skills system so that it is increasingly responsive to local needs, particularly focused on Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs), and driven by the needs of local growth opportunities. LEPs are responsible for identifying local skills priorities working in partnership with key players across their local economies. Growth Deals enable them to align investment in skills capital to their key growth priorities. For example, Nelson and Colne College has successfully has secured investment of £1.4m for an Advanced Engineering and Manufacturing Centre. Since December 2011 Government funding has also supported capital projects at the FE Colleges of Accrington and Rossendale, Blackburn, and Burnley. Greater devolution has enabled a Lancashire LEP scheme to support 4,000 employees aged 19 and over in small and medium-sized businesses to develop the skills that will give those businesses the confidence to grow. In addition, 610 adults started apprenticeships in Pendle in 2013/14 and 7,780 in Lancashire as a whole. 6,150 adults participated in FE and Leaning in 2013/14 in Pendle and 74,840 in Lancashire.</p>
