Tim Ward writes open letter to ESFA about cuts in funding to third sector providers

TSNLA CEO, Tim Ward has written to Peter Lauener at the Education and Skills Funding Agency raising serious concerns about the impact of the recent Adult Education Budget tender resulots.

Tim said "We have been raising concerns about this tendering exercise as we saw it as having a serious impact on the ability of third sector providers to deliver to the most vulnerable in our communities. Unfortunately our concerns fell on deaf ears. There are some winners but mostly the effect has been to either withdraw or significantly reduce AEB funding for third sector providers."
