LONDON: The government is to spend £412m on new build and refurbishment projects at 50 colleges. £110m comes from the Skills Funding Agency which will be more than matched with £302m investment from colleges.

The funding is the third phase of the Enhanced Renewal Grant which has contributed £330m since May 2010, supporting a £1bn of investment in college buildings in England.

All new projects are expected to be ready to use by September 2014.
