Post-18 education 2019 Augar Review

Език: EN

Публикувано от NSS UK

The Augar Review was released 30 May 2019 and puts forward recommendations to the government and stakeholders with the aim of improving post-18 further education. Prime Minister Theresa May commissioned the review to address questions surrounding student finance and consider how the Conservative government can develop an approach that will rival Labour’s plans to abolish tuition fees.

The 206-page report is organised into chapters that consider:

  • the purpose of post-18 education and how the system works
  • skills
  • higher education
  • further education
  • apprenticeships
  • the student contribution system
  • a post-18 maintenance system
  • the impact of the proposals

It also includes a foreword by Philip Augar, chair of the Education and Funding Review Panel; a review of the panel members; the panel’s principles; and the panel’s proposals.

Key recommendations from the panel include:

  • giving the FE college network a dedicated capital investment of £1 billion
  • providing full funding for level 2 and 3 qualifications to everyone, regardless of age
  • giving colleges greater flexibility with spending
  • withholding funding for level 6 apprenticeships if the candidate has already completed a publicly-funded degree
  • investing in the FE workforce and ensuring staff can see clear routes for progression and development
  • giving colleges a protected title to attract learners and prove that colleges are part of an adult education network
  • reducing the core funding rate for 18-year-olds
  • appointing Ofsted to inspect apprenticeships at all levels


The resource will be particularly useful for college staff and anyone working in the further education sector.
