The EFA and SFA Advisory Group closed in April 2017. The group has been replaced by the ESFA management board which has non-executive (external) membership.
Education Funding Agency (EFA) and Skills Funding Agency (SFA) had a joint external advisory group of independent and knowledgeable people to advise the agencies’ Chief Executive on the development and implementation of its operational functions.
The purpose of the advisory group was to:
- engage stakeholders and expert practitioners in the delivery and shaping of EFA and SFA operations
- create consensus and provide constructive feedback to EFA and SFA leadership team and staff about products, systems and customer service
- provide advice to the EFA and SFA Chief Executive and executives on specific issues when requested
