The comments made by Gillian Keegan, the Apprenticeships and Skills Minister, on 23 July 2020.
I’m delighted to announce the 20 applications that have been successful in securing funding from the College Collaboration Fund.
Now more than ever, it’s vital that colleges can support their students to gain the skills they need to progress and employers and our economy need to grow. This fund will help colleges work together, to develop cutting edge digital approaches to online learning, to overcome new challenges and continue to deliver high quality education and training for the communities they serve.
The past few months have been a challenging time for the sector, but they have gone above and beyond to support their students. This additional funding will help to support further collaborative work as we move forward. I look forward to hearing more about their progress and wish them all the best.
