The Government intends to level up the powers offered to mayors. An Order devolving adult education functions to the North of Tyne Combined Authority is already before Parliament. Subject to Parliamentary agreement, from the 2020/21 academic year the combined authority and their elected Mayor will be able to better shape adult education provision and so better equip residents for work, an apprenticeship or further learning.
