Area Based Review

The Liverpool City Region Area Based Review report has now been published.

Area Based Reviews are taking place across the UK.  The reviews aim to ensure that an area’s Further Education (FE) colleges remain financially resilient in the face of funding pressures and to ensure they can continue to deliver credible, high-quality professional and technical training.

The publication of the Area Based Review report is an important milestone in Liverpool City Region’s devolution journey.  This paves the way for the transfer of significant powers which will see the Adult Education Budget devolved to the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority from 2018. This means that from next year the Liverpool City Region will take a direct role in ensuring that college education and training continues to meet current and future skills needs of employers and learners.
