ESFA Education and Skills contracts 2019 to 2020

Information about ESFA Education and Skills contracts for 2019 to 2020


2019 to 2020 FE funding will be 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

The new framework will be used for all FE funding except for levy apprenticeships and European Social Fund.

We will start to roll the framework out in May 2019 with the Advanced Learner Loans and add further allocated funding for the 2019 to 2020 funding year in the summer. We intend to move the procured AEB and non-levy apprenticeships funding across to this framework in the summer too.

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.
