For 2009/10 and 2010/11, the Department did not specify an amount of funding for the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS) STEM Programme. Funding was incorporated in the total ‘sector directed’ element of the Grant funding letter.
From April 2011, LSIS is funded through the Skills Funding Agency Adult Participation Budget. The sector, in the form of the LSIS Council, determines the level of funding and LSIS deploys this to meet the needs identified by the sector and its key stakeholders.
The Department and LSIS remain committed to improving teaching and learning in STEM subjects, and to supporting the wider STEM agenda.
