The further education (FE) sector is vital to providing the highly skilled workforce that we need to support economic recovery following the Covid-19 outbreak.

We have therefore provided an extensive range of support to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 and retain capacity within the FE sector. This is in addition to the series of wider measures to support employers and employees set out by my right hon. Friend, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, on 3 April.

Our latest guidance on Covid-19 for the FE sector and all other educational settings is available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance-for-schools-and-other-educational-settings.
