The North of Tyne Combined Authority is working closely with central government to devolve the Adult Education Budget (AEB). From August 2020 the AEB will be transferred by the Department for Education to the North of Tyne Combined Authority to administer.
Devolution of the AEB will provide the Combined Authority with the responsibility to ensure that learners aged 19 and over, resident in the North of Tyne, who are eligible for funding, have access to appropriate education and training.
The North of Tyne Combined Authority will allocate AEB to providers through a mix of both Grant and Contract for Services. For the proportion of the budget that we allocate to Contract for Services, procurement will begin in Autumn 2019, in preparation for delivery from 1 August 2020.
Providers of Adult Education are invited to attend this Provider Engagement Event. Full details and registration via Eventbrite.
