Cuts Watch #17: Further details on education cuts

25 May 2010, by in Cuts Watch

Although the Department for Education has published little information on how its £670 million of cuts will be made, Community Care has obtained further details.

In total, non-departmental public bodies sponsored by the DfE will lose £80million. The sector skills council for the children’s workforce will lose 10 per cent of its budget, £11m of cuts will come from cutting ‘back office staff around IT procurement and research programmes’ and £3m will be cut from conferences and networking events. The bulk of the cuts, £311m, will come from local authority grants – making it highly likely that frontline children’s services will be affected in local areas.
