ESFA: early termination of funding agreement - list of organisations

A list of lead providers whose funding agreement for education and training delivery has been terminated early by the ESFA.

Document

Details

The ESFA’s funding agreements include clauses providing for early termination, which we have normally only exercised where there are issues including those relating to quality such as an Ofsted Grade 4 or where we have other evidence of poor quality delivery. The 3-month notice period allows us to ensure learners are protected through a managed transfer to providers with good quality provision with employer agreement.

The list covers from the 2014 to 2015 academic year to date and will be updated on a regular basis.

Funding higher-risk organisations and subcontractors

The policy for funding higher-risk organisations and subcontractors sets out criteria which would prevent a provider being considered for funding.
