Market entry process for institutions applying for an EFA education and training contract for high-needs students.
This Education Funding Agency (EFA) ‘High needs students: market entry application process’ is for institutions that do not have an EFA contract for services. It outlines the eligibility criteria and application process for consideration of an EFA contract for services to deliver education and training for high-needs students.
Institutions wishing to be considered under the process and are in scope should read the ‘2014 to 2015 academic year contract for services’ (annex 1) and, if they agree to be bound by the terms and conditions, email a completed ‘Institution application form’ (annex 2) to HNSmarketentry.firstname.lastname@example.org.
