Residential Support Scheme guide for 2014 to 2015


The Residential Support Scheme is intended to help support students aged 16 to 18 with the costs of living away from home to study because the provision is not available locally.

This guide provides information to all those involved in the delivery of the scheme in 2014 to 2015.

It does not attempt to offer definitive advice for every situation; institutions who require further or more detailed help and advice should contact the Leaner Support Service who administer the scheme on behalf of EFA.
