On 31st July 2023, we hosted an initial stakeholder engagement event inviting adult education providers and other relevant organisations to Durham Riverside Stadium, to find out more about the proposed devolution deal for the North East region, in particular the timescales leading up to the Adult Education Budget being fully devolved from Academic Year 2024/25. Over 160 delegates attended the event.

A second stakeholder event was held on the 13th November 2023, with over 180 delegates in attendance. The event outlined the Commissioning Approach for three Adult Skills funding streams and the early priorities for  the new North East Mayoral Combined Authority:

  2. Devolved Free Courses for Jobs (FCFJ) AY 2024/25

  3. Skills Bootcamps FY 2024/25.
