    The call for evidence comes as the FE sector is undergoing Area Reviews alongside increased competition from schools and universities, cuts to public funding, and demographic shifts. The Apprenticeship Levy is another major factor the sector must consider as many FE providers experience continued instability. The Government is now consulting on what the final framework will look like.
