We are in control of our budget – Education president
EDUCATION is ‘in control of its budget’, its president, Paul Le Pelley, has argued in the wake of an overspend and request for even more money next year.
Deputy Le Pelley was speaking after the release of the 2018 Budget, which detailed his committee’s request for £77.8m. for 2018, nearly £4m. more than Policy & Resources believes it needs.
If its wishes are granted, its 2018 budget would be £3m. more than its 2017 figure.
The committee said last month that it had been facing challenges in aiming to realise its 3% savings target for 2017 – just over £2m.
Deputy Le Pelley said the committee hoped savings would be achieved by the transformation of post-16 education, but warned that any further delay might affect that.
