#Budget2017: Boost for technical skills funding

This week’s Budget was trailed extensively in advance as a Budget for skills and there was widespread support across the FE and skills sector for the new measures announced by the Chancellor. 

Iain Murray, unionlearn Strategy Manager, has written a TUC Touchstone blog about the Budget which points out that "there is much to welcome in the Budget on technical education and skills."

The blog discusses the boost to funding for technical education as well as referring to the new £40M pilot for lifelong learning initiatives.
