Adult Education Budget

The North of Tyne Combined Authority has control of an annual £25 million Adult Education Budget (AEB) devolved to the area from the government. AEB is being used to help upskill people into good work and further training. The purpose of the Adult Education Budget is to engage adults (aged 19 and over) in learning and equip them with the skills needed to progress to employment, apprenticeships, or higher learning.

Thriving Together have an important role to play in the delivery of the devolved Adult Skills Fund. We allow smaller providers to access funding and to benefit from economies of scale, whilst enabling learners to access provision in locations and via delivery models which best suit their needs.

We currently work with seven partners:

  • Blyth Resource and Initiative Centre (BRIC)
  • Digital Voice
  • Women’s Workshop
  • Luk Luk Productions
  • Groundworks
  • Northern Butterflies
  • Northern Learning Trust (NLT)

Making sure the smallest voice in the third sector is heard
