EAUC has made what must have been a hurried submission to the government's 'Building our Industrial Strategy' green paper. I say this because it seems the only way to explain this sentence:
"The combined budget of our members is some £25 billion, with responsibility for the education and training of over 2 million students supported by half a billion staff."
If this isn't an egregious typo, the sector must have expanded since I retired. Still, it's only a response to government ...
I'm sure EAUC will let you see the whole thing if you ask nicely – then you'll be able to play that much-practised game, Count the Cliché.
