Information about ESFA Education and Skills contracts for 2019 to 2020
2019 to 2020 FE funding is contracted using a new contract framework.
The purpose of the new framework is to:
- reduce the number of separate agreements that providers will hold with us
- ensure that we work consistently together across our agreements
- update the contracts with the latest commercial best practice
We started to roll the framework out in May 2019. We have replicated the main clauses in our contracts for services (procured AEB, procured non-levy apprenticeships and carry-in apprenticeships for ITPs) so there is consistency across funding for both parties – they can be found on the following page
The agreements are formed of a main terms and conditions body and schedules. For further information on the new framework structure, please watch the short video presentations below.
