The policy and processes the Education and Skills Funding Agency uses to make qualifications eligible for public funding.
We have removed the requirement for all delivery we fund to be in the form of a qualification. We only require a qualification to be delivered where a learner is exercising their legal entitlement to a first full level 2 or level 3 and/or English and maths.
The policy and process for identifying which qualifications are eligible for legal entitlements and through local flexibilities are set out in the documents above.
The 2017 to 2018 qualification eligibility principles and legal entitlements documents explain how we make qualifications eligible for funding through the Adult Education Budget and explains how these offers are updated.
2017 to 2018 legal entitlements offer
We have published the qualifications that will be available including:
- English and maths legal entitlement
- level 2 and level 3 legal entitlements for 19 to 23 year olds undertaking their first full level 2 and full level 3
In anticipation of future changes due to technical education reform and the functional skills reform, we have not made any new changes to these offers other than those which we had already announced during 2016 to 2017.
