Further Education: Finance

Volume 491: debated on Monday 20 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Innovation, Universities and Skills pursuant to his written ministerial statement of 4 March 2009, Official Report, column 55W, on capital investment (further education colleges), whether colleges which have not yet received approval will be required to redesign capital funding projects in order to receive funding. (268527)

The Learning and Skills Council (LSC) has already begun discussing options for prioritisation with the further education sector. Once the consultation is complete, the LSC will advise on options. Until that process is complete, it is not possible to say whether capital projects will be required to be redesigned. But the potential impact on college projects including the need for redesign will be considered fully when the LSC comes forward with proposals.
