Details

This guidance explains the process that may lead to a grant funding arrangement with the Education Funding Agency (EFA) to deliver provision for High Needs Students.

In order to be eligible to receive EFA funding, special post-16 institutions (SPI) are required to be referenced within their home LA high needs place change request workbook (required by 25 November 2016) and must be named on at least 10 Education Health and Care plans.

Once they have met the above requirement, EFA will undertake due diligence to ensure themselves that the SPI is eligible to receive EFA funding.

The guidance and accompanying documents explain the due diligence process.
