Principles and processes we use to approve qualifications for funding in England

Principles and processes we use to approve qualifications for funding in England.

This manual sets out:

  • the common approval principles that we apply to approve qualifications for funding
  • where there are specific approval principles, and which offers we apply them to
  • how and when we review qualifications for funding approval
  • which qualifications we will approve for post-16 funding during the qualification funding approval moratorium
  • how we maintain the offers through the funding year

This manual applies to both the remainder of the 2021 to 2022 funding year and to the 2022 to 2023 funding year, which runs from 1 August 2022 to 31 July 2023. From 19 April 2022, we will use this manual to approve qualifications for funding for 2022 to 2023 and the remainder of 2021 to 2022.
