Deliver a Life and Job-Ready Education
Under the Conservatives, the gap between best- and worst off children has widened again. School funding is lower in real terms in 2022/23 than it was in 2009/10. They have neglected the further education sector, taken opportunities away from young people and closed the door on retraining opportunities for older adults.
