Una Bennett, Deputy Director Funding Systems
Una leads the delivery of the technical funding systems underpinning all adult further education skills programmes and apprenticeships. She also leads the work with colleges, providers, employers and other stakeholders to set the rules for funding to deliver priorities set by government. A key priority is making sure our systems continue to be simplified and respond to the needs of learners and employers.
Una and her team determine how we fund provision, and specify the data we collect from colleges, providers and employers to calculate funding and other processes such as reporting. The team works with colleagues in the SFA and BIS on delivering major policy initiatives such as apprenticeship reform.
