A report by a leading think tank examining England’s tertiary education system argues that the current arrangements are increasingly expensive and fail to serve the needs of either students or the nation’s economy.
The Education Policy Institute report Remaking Tertiary Education, written by King’s College London economist Alison Wolf (pictured above), examines the future of England’s tertiary education system. It claims that English technical education is “in tatters” and the system for funding university-level qualifications is highly inefficient.
In the report, published on 14 November, Wolf called for “radical and significant reform” to funding for post-secondary education qualifications. This includes supporting those who go through technical education in the same way as those attending university.
