Is post-school education funding fit for purpose?
That’s the question being posed by the Lords Select Committee on Economic Affairs in their latest inquiry.
Against a background of university funding, student debt, employment prospects for graduates and school/college leavers, apprenticeships, technical education and T-Levels, and the decrease in levels of adult education, the cross-party Committee, is inviting written submissions on ‘the economics of higher education, further education and vocational training’.
The inquiry will investigate how post-school education is funded and whether it is focused sufficiently on the skills which the British economy requires.
The deadline for written submissions 14 September 2017.
