Question for Department for Education

UIN 127995, tabled on 19 February 2018

To ask the Secretary of State for Education, pursuant to the Answer of 8 February 2018 to Question 126486 on further education: loans, what additional resources his Department has allocated to help learners find new providers.

The department’s priority when a training provider is no longer delivering courses is to make sure any learners affected can continue with their studies with minimal disruption.

The Education and Skills Funding Agency, working with the Student Loans Company, will seek to identify suitable alternative providers where learners can complete their studies. We are committed to offering, as far as is practicable, a solution for each learner. The resources available for this are kept under review.
