The Department for Education, alongside other government departments, has published a business plan covering its vision, government priorities, structural reform plans, departmental expenditure and information on how it is going to become more transparent.

The Education Funding Agency (EFA) is the department’s delivery agency for funding and compliance. The agency provides revenue and capital funding for education for learners between the ages of 3 and 19, or the ages of 3 and 25 for those with learning difficulties and disabilities. Information about the EFA is available online.
