Answered By: 
The Mayor

In the autumn statement, it was announced that the Adult Education Budget (AEB) would be devolved to the GLA from 2019/20.  We are working closely with government to establish the functions that the GLA would be responsible for and the process leading to devolution of AEB being in place. We will be producing a London Skills Strategy, overseen by the Skills for Londoners taskforce.

The strategy will set out London's skills priorities and include detail on priorities for the devolved Adult Education Budget.
