To ask the Secretary of State for Education, pursuant to the Answer of 1 December 2022 to Question 101099 on Further Education Expenditure, how much and what proportion of the £6.5 billion made available to 16-19 education has been spent in the 2022-23 academic year.
4 January 2023
The department does not specifically track the spending by each institution against the allocated 16-19 budget. Colleges, school sixth forms and other providers can determine how and when to spend this funding in each academic year to best support their students.
Details of the funding allocations by institution for 16-19 year olds (or up to 25 years with an education health and care plan) in the 2022/23 academic year can be accessed here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/16-to-19-allocation-data-2022-to-2023-academic-year.
