Response To The Augar Review
The Augar Review was published last week, making clear recommendations for the future of Higher Education and its funding.
The 8 principles guiding the independent panel’s review set a clear desire to improve the quality and impact of tertiary education. Most notably for Creative & Cultural Skills is the acknowledgement in the disparity of resources for Further Education and Higher Education. We have long appreciated the important role FE can play here, not least in its ability to engage and progress a wider range of learners. We welcome the review’s recognition of England’s FE colleges as engines of social mobility and inclusion, providing community learning, reskilling and upskilling opportunities.
