In July 2017 the House of Lords Economic Affairs Committee published a call for evidence for an inquiry, “the economics of higher education, further education, and vocational training”.
The inquiry sought views on the extent to which the current structure of post-16 education and training is sustainable, and appropriate for the modern British economy. It also looked to examine whether the system is striking the correct balance between meeting the demands of the labour market, and providing good value for both students and the Government.
The Committee has now published the Education Policy Institute’s written response. You can read it here.
