£2.4 billion of capital investment has been made in the further education sector, including investment for information and learning technology (ILT) in the last 10 years, compared to ear marked expenditure of zero pounds in 1997.

A record further £2.3 billion will be invested over the next three years—enabling us to continue the 'once in a generation' opportunity we have to build world-class further education facilities so the sector can deliver world-class skills.
