Following the devolution of Central Government Powers to the Combined Authorities, Sheffield City Council’s grant for the 19+ Adult Education Budget (AEB) for both formula funded and non-formula funding is provided under an agreement with South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA).
The AEB will fund learning for Adults 19+ who live in South Yorkshire, so that they can improve their skills, get back to work or remain and progress in work.
The grant will continue to be administered and made available to Sheffield adults by the Council’s Lifelong Learning, and Skills Service (LLS), specifically by the Family, Adult and Community Education Service (FACES), via Sheffield City Councils Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS).
This will be achieved through a new successor DPS that will enable FACES service to continue to deliver Adult Learning in Community settings from August 2023.
