Failing colleges face intervention under skills plan

Underperforming further education colleges in England are to face a tougher regime, as the government launches its skills college buildingstrategy.

There will be an “administered college” status which will place restrictions on spending and staff.

Skills minister Matthew Hancock promised “swift and effective action” where colleges were inadequate.

There will also be £77m extra capital funding, plus a further £137m from colleges, to benefit 47 colleges.

Inspectors have found two out of three colleges are outstanding or good – but there are also 4% which are identified as being inadequate.
