Funding Information

We know how important it is to have information about funding in order to make decisions about your curriculum. Thus, each of our qualification pages contains at-a-glance information on the type of funding available.  One may also locate qualifications by their type of funding, via the Qualification Search page.  If interested in delivering unitised provision, why not check our Unit Bank?

For ease of use, we have used the following terminology:

Adult Skills – Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) funded (via Adult Education Budget/Local Flexibilities) for learners ages 19+

Advanced Learner Loans – Level 3 to Level 6 qualifications eligible for Advanced Learner Loans

EFA – ESFA funded for learners aged 16-19

Section 96 – Qualifications approved for delivery to young learners in one or more of the following age brackets – 14-16, 16-18, 18+
