The Skills Funding Agency is a partner organisation of the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) and it exists to fund and promote adult further education (FE) and skills training in England.

The FE and skills sector comprises more than 220 FE colleges, some 900 independent training providers, and some 2,500 training organisations with which colleges and providers subcontract. It is all of these organisations that make skills work. Our job is to facilitate their crucial mission by making funding and support available.
