Skills Funding Agency: additional 19 colleges to receive funding

The CEO of the Skills Funding Agency, Geoff Russell has confirmed a further 19 colleges will receive funding under the Enhanced Renewal Grant.

These colleges had previously been unsuccessful as they exceeded the Agency’s main allocation of £100 million. However, additional funds have been made available to fund the 19 projects amounting to around £29 million.

Geoff Russell said:  “We are delighted that we can provide Enhanced Renewal Grant allocations to an additional 19 colleges. These grants are part of our continuing support and commitment to colleges and the modernisation of the FE estate.  This investment reflects the crucial role that further education colleges have to play in providing skills to young people, adults and businesses, providing regeneration to local communities and the economy.”

Forty six colleges were successful in the original application for the Enhanced Renewal Grant.
