star this property answer text <p>Higher education institutions (HEIs) are independent and have autonomy over which courses to deliver (such as Youth Work courses). It is the government’s role to help ensure that the higher education (HE) sector as a whole is responsive to, and able to, deliver demand for HE provision.</p><p>Whilst we do not hold accurate course figures, first degree entrants into Youth Work studies at UK HEIs have decreased by 26% between the period 2013 to 2014 and the period 2016 to 2017.</p><p>Through our regulatory reforms, we have established the Office for Students (OfS). This is a new regulator for the HE sector, and it has student choice at the heart of its agenda. OfS has introduced tools like the Teaching Excellence and Students Outcomes Framework and Longitudinal Education Outcomes data. These tools will put more information into the hands of prospective students. They will also allow students to better understand which course is right for them and the outcomes delivered by various courses at different institutions.</p><p> </p>
