Sub-contractors' funding 2016/17

Sub-contracting can be an effective way of enhancing the capacity and diversity of our provision. However during the academic period 2015/2016 we did not utilise sub-contracts to deliver provision within the Dudley borough.

In line with the funding rules of the Skills Funding Agency we are required to publish the actual level of funding paid and retained for each of our sub-contractors in 2016/17. The following table shows this information for delivery of Community Learning provision within the Dudley Borough.
