Adult Education Budget
From 1 August 2019, Liverpool City Region Combined Authority (LCRCA) is responsible for allocation of funding to colleges, training agencies and local authority providers, to provide training for adults aged 19 and over through the Adult Education Budget (AEB).
As an adult education provider, The City of Liverpool College is committed to creating opportunities for the people of Liverpool and the wider city region through a range of flexible, tailored training and apprenticeships, that meet the needs of local businesses.  These programmes also equip adults with relevant industry knowledge and skills, to build on their confidence and enhance wellbeing.
Devolution of the AEB from central government is intended to focus on the scale and nature of regional skills issues, and further identify where local interventions and targeted training are likely to have the greatest impact.
