The Department for Education has very significantly reduced the cost of its communications since 2010. The Department coordinates communications activities centrally to ensure they are focused and effective, using low-cost campaigns whenever practical. Paid-for marketing has been used to support several important campaigns including: encouraging people to come forward as adopters and foster parents; encouraging parents to take up the extension of free childcare to two-year-olds; and the Your Life campaign to ensure young adults acquire knowledge in maths and science.

The Department does not have a specific budget solely for advertising, which is included within the total communications spending below.

The Department’s total communications spending for each requested financial year is as follows:

2010-11

£36,746,530

2011-12

£28,639,860

2012-13

£7,163,100

2013-14
