In partnership with the 157 Group, we have just released a new report entitled, “The economic impact of further education colleges”. The 12-page report is based on detailed economic analyses we have carried out with a number of colleges in recent years, confirming in actual numbers the huge value colleges give to learners, businesses, communities, taxpayers and society as a whole.
The intention of the report is to set out to policy makers, clearly and objectively, the huge value the FE sector brings to local economies, regional economies and ultimately the national economy. Our hope is that in demonstrating the vital role played by colleges in driving economic prosperity, the report might go some way to persuading the Government to invest more in the sector.
The report has been released to coincide with the state opening of Parliament and you can download a copy by clicking on the cover below:
