Technical and applied qualifications in creative industry subjects are available to students as part of their funded Key Stage 4 and 16-19 study programmes

When new and more substantial technical education programmes (‘T levels’) are introduced in the Creative and Design route for 16-19 year olds, there will be additional funding for them, as part of an additional £500 million per year for T levels in general

The Education Secretary also recently announced an additional £1.3billion for schools funding over two years - meaning schools funding will be £2.6 billion higher.

In November 2016 we announced a package of funding for music and cultural education that is designed to improve access to the arts for all children. For 2017-18 we are providing over £120 million to support a range of music and cultural education programmes including £75 million for music education hubs.
