Today, Thursday 6 June, we are publishing the list of successful applicants for the third and final round of the Strategic College Improvement Fund (SCIF).
The SCIF was launched with a pilot in October 2017. By the end of the scheme, we will have supported 80 colleges with funding of £12.3 million to undertake a focused quality improvement programme with a higher-performing partner.
The final round of the programme will see 17 colleges receive £2.5 million to improve the quality of their provision.
Anne Milton, Apprenticeships and Skills Minister said:
I’m pleased to announce the colleges that have been successful in securing funding from the third and final round of the Strategic College Improvement Fund.
The fund will have supported 80 colleges in total to drive up standards and help to make sure all students get the best education and training possible.
We’ve seen some great success stories as a result of the programme. It’s excellent news that colleges are making progress. Many colleges are intending to continue working together beyond the programme’s end, which can only be for the good of students.
