SFCA responds to £1bn catch-up fund announcement excluding sixth formsBack
Bill Watkin, Chief Executive of the Sixth Form Colleges Association said:
“Our understanding was that 16 to 19 providers would be able to access at least some of the proposed Covid catch up support. However, today’s announcement specifically excludes 16 to 19 providers so we await further clarification on what elements of the package and related funding our members will be able to access. Young people of all ages have shown great resilience in response to the Covid crisis; it would be entirely unjustifiable to exclude sixth form students from the package announced today”.
