Further education is a term mainly used in connection with education in the United Kingdom andIreland. It is post-compulsory education (in addition to that received at secondary school), that is distinct from the education offered in universities (higher education).

It may be at any level above compulsory secondary education, from basic skills training to higher vocational education such as; City and Guilds, Higher National Diploma, or Foundation Degree.

Due to the size of the lists containing contact details for the schools/education outlets in England they are embedded as Google Spreadsheets. These are downloadable from the original file and can be searched using ctrl+f (cmd+f on a Mac).

For ease of use, and so mistakes are not made when sending FOI requests, these contact details also include the locations of the schools.

It is advised when sending a Freedom of Information request to any of the schools listed to include in your email that you are making a request under the act, this makes it clear to the authority who may not receive many requests.
