A study on reducing bureaucracy in further education (FE) is due for release next month.

The study, conducted by the National Audit Office (NAO), will examine the efforts of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) to reduce the bureaucracy faced by FE colleges.

NAO say reducing bureaucracy is a key part of the approach to freeing up the sector and supporting structured cost reduction and they will “seek to assess if the Department’s plans, and those of its agencies, to reduce bureaucracy are likely to be effective.”

FE Week today spoke to NAO, who revealed the study will be released in November, subject to the timing of parliamentary recess.
