Reforms to improve skills delivery

Close date: 9 June 2008

The Government consults on how it can improve the delivery of the skills of both adults and young people. Proposals include the transfer of funds to local authorities to help colleges and sixth forms deliver the reforms needed to raise the education and training leaving age to 18. The consultation also includes plans to dissolve the Learning and Skills Council, which will be replaced by the Skills Funding Agency.
