Professor Ellen Hazelkorn’s report examines issues such as the growing complexity, duplication and provision gaps across post-compulsory education and training.

Through our reforms of higher education we want to widen access, support students and promote innovation and entrepreneurship in our universities and colleges.

Information about our policies for the sector can be found in this section of the website, including:

  • a new student finance system by 2019
  • a new framework for building a world-class post-compulsory education system
  • new initial teacher training programmes from 2019 to support delivery of the new curriculum and assessment system.
We fund the Higher Education sector in Wales though the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales, with support for students provided by Student Finance Wales.
