* The Education Department has determined that information for 2013 to 2015 is exempt under Article 16 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011, as it is estimated that it will take in excess of 12.5 hours to collect the information.
|Income generated from fees||-985,800 ||-943,153||-974,268|

The 2019 budget is yet available
since 2016 the Department has been recharging staff costs to courses, thereby reflecting these costs accurately. Prior to 2016 staff costs were charged to the area they were working (eg Care) rather than charged to the courses they were teaching on. To investigate this detail would take more than 12.5 hours.
the 2018 budget has been provided as the actual expenditure will not be available until year end.
the budget for 2019 has not been debated and the transition plan has not been finalised. Therefore the Department does not know its expenditure limit. The fees were increased in September 2018 and so there should be a greater contribution towards central costs.
overheads include training, management, support services, finance and IT, estates, student support, examination costs, marketing and policy.
Article 16 A scheduled public authority may refuse to supply information if cost excessive
(1) A scheduled public authority that has been requested to supply information may refuse to supply the information if it estimates that the cost of doing so would exceed an amount determined in the manner prescribed by Regulations.
Regulation 2 (1) of the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014 allows an authority to refuse a request for information where the estimated cost of dealing with the request would exceed the specified amount of the cost limit of £500. This is the estimated cost of one person spending 12.5 working hours in determining whether the department holds the information, locating, retrieving and extracting the information.
