PM to announce more cash for Technical Education today

During a trip to the North West today Theresa May will announce that an additional £170 million of taxpayer's money will be made available for Technical education.

This new injection of cash into technical education forms part of her plan for a new industrial strategy for the UK

Prime Minister Theresa May will launch the £170m in new funding when she unveils a Green Paper consultation on the industrial strategy during a trip to the North West of England on Monday.

The money will be used to provide training for the “high-paid, high-skilled jobs of the future,” she will emphasise, while also aiming at tackling regional differences in performance.

The government plans to open Institutes of Technology to provide higher-level, non-university education in science, technology, engineering and maths (also known as Stem) subjects. It hopes to boost the prestige of non-academic subjects in the process.
