On 17 March with the Department for Children, Schools and Families we published "Raising Expectations: enabling the system to deliver". It sets out plans to tackle education and skills challenges and strengthen support for young people and adults.

In the proposals, colleges will receive funding for pre 19 provision from local authorities and for post 19 provision from the Skills Funding Agency. This continues the current practice of two distinct discussions for pre and post 19 provision.
