STRUCTURE OF THE TVET SYSTEM

In the UK, several organisations work alongside learning providers in delivering skills provision. The diagram below explains how they link to each other in relation to public sector funding and gives further information on how they work.

HOW THE TVET SYSTEM IS FUNDED

TVET in the UK is funded mainly by government funding bodies – particularly to support the full or part time learning of young people under 25 years old and some speci c adult learning. Colleges and Training Providers also receive income from fees for further and higher education programmes including where individuals have taken a government learning loan to pay for their studies. Colleges in particular also generate extra funds from income earned from employers for apprenticeships and for commercial activities such as tailor made training for employers and consultancy. Funding mechanisms vary in each UK nation, as well as in relation to the age of the learner.
