Model funding agreements from the Education and Skills Funding Agency.

For each of the education and training providers it funds, the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) has in place a funding agreement or contract. The terms of the agreement or contract vary according to the type of education and/or training provision and the legal status of the entity.
