In a special podcast this week Team Wonkhe attempts to make sense of a big release of policy documents from the Department for Education.
There’s an interim response to the Augar review of HE fees and funding, news on the TEF, Gavin Williamson’s long awaited skills white paper and a teaching funding settlement for 2021/22.
With Debbie McVitty, Wonkhe’s Editor, David Kernohan and Jim Dickinson, Wonkhe’s Associate Editors, and presented by Mark Leach, Wonkhe’s Editor in Chief.
Items this week
- Debbie McVitty digests the Westminster government’s post-compulsory skills agenda as set out in the Skills for Jobs white paper and the interim conclusion of the review of post-18 education and funding.
- Subject TEF is gone, the Olympic medals are gone, and the whole thing will happen much less often. But what will a new TEF look like? David Kernohan reads the submissions.
- Jim Dickinson explains what is and isn’t on the table in the government’s long awaited review of admissions.
- An interim response to Augar is here, but the really big question of tuition fee levels remains dangling over the sector. Mark Leach argues that the indecision will cause big problems later this year.
- London the big loser in university funding for 2020-21.
