‘Investing in Skills for Sustainable Growth' published in November 2010 set out that the overall investment in adult Further Education (FE) and skills would be £3.9 billion in the 2011-12 financial year. Within this overall investment, £3.7 billion would be invested in delivery of FE and skills provision for post-19 learners, supporting capacity for over 3 million training places in the 2011/12 academic year.

It also highlighted that Government funding would be focussed where its impact is maximised, towards the young, the low skilled and the unemployed.
