Our task now is to work together to put in place the right measures to meet our aspirations for the FE sector. We cannot simply set out the strategy in a white paper and then walk away.
Without proper debate, implementation will be stunted. I want more people involved in this debate and will continue to engage with the sector through our regular contacts with colleges through our Sounding Boards and regional visits. We aim for a streamlined and straightforward system, giving predictability to colleges and providers, and more tailored funding for learners and employers. There will also be new opportunities for enterprising colleges and providers to develop their business.
