FE & HE Digest – Spring 2022

Latest news from the Further and Higher Education Sectors

In this edition, we look at forthcoming changes to the subcontracting standard to help you ensure that you are prepared for the new regime coming into force in September 2022. We provide an update on the levels of traineeship funding being rolled out as well as how the flexi-apprenticeship consultation is progressing.

We also review the details of the new Covid-19 workforce fund to assist institutions in funding staff sickness. Finally, with sustainability now being a core challenge, we examine how institutions are responding to the demand from students and other stakeholders to increase their reporting on Environmental and Social Governance (ESG) matters and provide a summary of the outcomes of COP26.

As we consider the future topics, we will seek to address during 2022, we recognise that across all aspects of education there is continued uncertainty in this post-August report period and prior to the publication of education white papers, to which is added fears of rampant inflation and increasing unrest amongst teaching staff. It is clear this year is not going to be a quiet one.

We hope you enjoy this edition of FE & HE Digest.
