Hand it over, higher ed: why colleges deserve universities’ funding

“Policy Exchange recently released a report recommending that the government redistributes some of the wealth of our education sector by taking from “the rich” (universities) and giving to “the poor” (the further education sector). The thinktank says this would help to cultivate the high-level technical skills the country so badly needs.

“The report, entitled Higher, Faster, Further, More, calls on the chancellor to use this month’s spending review to redirect £532m from university grant funding into further education. I’m sure many in higher education will find the suggestion contentious, but it is one that many of us in further education fully support and the argument for doing so is a strong one.”
