The UK has “gained a substantial amount” from education after Brexit, the education minister said on Monday.
In a speech to the annual conference of the British Association of School and College Leaders (Bacch), Gove said the UK had achieved “a significant increase” in revenue from education, up by £2.6bn to £20.6 billion.
Gove also said the country had “gathered £200 million” in the first six months of Brexit and added that this had been “unconditional”.
Theresa May, the Home Secretary, last week announced that the UK would withdraw from the EU’s free movement of people directive (FoM), a move which is widely seen as being a victory for business and businesses.
This week, the EU also imposed a cap on the amount of EU citizens allowed to live in the UK.
