The documents on this page have been produced to help you understand how we have calculated your post-16 allocation.

We have now issued final post-16 allocation statements, inclusive of student support funding, to all institutions. These have been uploaded to EFA Information Exchange and are located in the ‘Revenue Funding’ folder, under AY 2016 to 2017.

We have updated all of our explanatory notes to clarify how we have calculated allocations of student support funding. The Further Education explanatory note now also confirms our approach to funding commercial and charitable providers (CCPs) for 2016 to 2017 and the business case deadline for CCPs and higher education institutions returning HESA data.

The relevant explanatory notes also confirm the thresholds and deadlines by which an institution should raise any queries or put forward a business case in relation to their final allocation statement.

Further information on 16 to 19 funding allocations is available on GOV.UK.
