So after 21 you could no longer have the opportunity to improve your career? What are the government thinking?
Martin Doel, the AoC's chief executive, said the cuts "could mean an end to the vital courses that provide skilled employees for the workforce, such as nurses and social care workers".
"Cumulative cuts of this magnitude are extremely difficult to absorb, and mean that those colleges and other providers who have a strong focus on adult learners may either go out of business or be forced to re-focus their attention on younger, pre-19 students."
"Once they hit 21 there won't be any support left.
"That is not a great scenario for a society in which people are living longer and wanting to contribute to society and work longer too."
I am afraid in many areas this is the start of what the next five years could bring.
