Adult education budget being decided by WECA

Adult education budget being decided by WECA

Schools across the country might be suffering under budget cuts, but an estimated £17 million is set to be signed over from the Government to the West of England Combined Authority, which makes up Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol and South Gloucestershire, to be used for Adult Education.
The West of England Combined Authority (WECA) looks to agree the Adult Education Budget for the 2019/20 academic year when it meets at Bristol City Hall on 2nd July. Parliament is expected to approve it later in the year.
Currently central Government sets out how the budget is spent based on national needs and requirements and Devolution would allow WECA to plan regionally focusing on funding the skills it believes are required by businesses and industries.
WECA will find out early next year how much it will actually receive.
