The Labour Party will pump £1 billion into further education to make a "success" of delivering the government's T levels if it comes to power, shadow education secretary Angela Rayner has announced.
Ms Rayner (pictured), addressing delegates at the Labour Party conference in Brighton today, said that a Labour government would aim to "manage success" in the sector by investing £1 billion, and would commit to delivering the T-level technical qualifications outlined by chancellor Philip Hammond in his spring budget in March.
"Further education isn’t just for those who didn’t get the chance to go to university, it serves the majority of young people," Ms Rayner said. "They too deserve a world-class education. Instead, conference, the Conservatives are happy to manage decline. Well, I will only be happy when we manage success.
