The Act – Section by Section

Part 1 - Further and Higher Education Etc.

Provision of further and higher education, etc.

Section 5 Fundable further and higher education

11.This provides definitions of fundable further and higher education for the purposes of this Act, updating where necessary to reflect changes to some school qualifications. The definitions in the Act therefore differ from those for ‘further education’ and ‘higher education’ in the 1992 Act, (which remain for the purposes of that Act and references elsewhere to them).
