LEARNERS' ELIGIBILITY ARE AS FOLLOWS:


16-18 – these learners are fully funded by the Education Funding Agency on a per learner basis, or in the case of Apprentices, by the Skills Funding Agency based on the cost of the relevant framework.


19 -23 – these learners can access funding for a first full level 2 and first full level 3 (or 4), but the rules are very specific and depend upon prior attainment, employment status, location of delivery (classroom/workplace) and the qualifications being taken. This group has become smaller in recent years, reducing from the 19-24 age group, to the 19-23 age group.

 

24+ – very few of these learners are eligible for public funding. Funding is limited to those most in need: the unemployed and those without basic skills. Level 3 and 4 co-funding used to be available for certain learners in this group, but from 2013/14 all funding for 24+ learners taking level 3 and 4 is limited to loans
