Skills-based education is set to win substantial extra funding in the comprehensive spending review, which is to be unveiled next week, reports The Financial Times (p6).

Extra revenue will be allocated to support the new 'vocational ladder' of skills-based education and training running from schools through colleges and work-based schemes to foundation degrees for all ages.

While schools will be central to the review's allocations for education - with an emphasis on capital spending - education secretary David Blunkett will seek to meet expectations that the government is serious about vocational skills.
