Skills Funding Agency Transition

Tue, 17/11/2009

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills is transforming the skills system with the creation of the Skills Funding Agency, which, from April 2010, will be the single funding provider for adult skills in England outside of higher education.

The Skills Funding Agency's main function will be to direct funding quickly and efficiently to further education colleges and other skills providers. It will take an activist approach to deliver the skills that employers and individuals need now and in the future, supporting skills development in areas of strategic importance to the economy. In addition, Regional Development Agencies (RDAs) will become the bodies responsible for producing the regional skills strategy and championing and advocating skills at a regional level.
