3 Objectives By the end of the session you will : understand the recent developments in government policy and how these are supported by funding reformunderstand how the shadow allocation has been calculated and the supporting toolkithave the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback around the changes to the formula
4 Autonomous Professional Education Institutions What is changing?Autonomous Professional Education InstitutionsFunding per studentStudyprogrammesRaising Participation Age
5 Raising Participation Age The participation age will be raised to:For 16 year olds -end of the academic year in which they are 17 from Summer 2013For 17 year olds to their 18th birthday from Summer 2015Applies to all those resident in EnglandEnforcement deferredWhat counts as participation?...full time education (school, college or independent provider for at least 540 hours)home educationApprenticeshipfull-time work including at least 280 hours of educationFunding per studentStudyprogrammesRaising Participation Age
6 Raising Participation Age StudyProgrammesWhat are Study Programmes?...Applies to all year oldsStudents will take either academic programme or a substantial vocational qualification recognised by employers – these must help them secure skilled work or a university placeWhere appropriate students will also take part in work experienceStudents who don’t have GCSEs grade C in English and maths at 16 will continue to study these subjectsStudents who aren’t able to study a substantial qualification will take a programme of work experience and continue to develop their numeracy and literacy skillsFunding per studentStudyprogrammesRaising Participation Age
7 Raising Participation Age 16-19 education was funded…Qualification by qualificationFunding is unfit to support RPAWolf found there to be perverse incentives which didn’t help raise standardsSystem is very complex and opaque16-19 education will be funded…student by studentIncreased focus on providing the student with a holistic study programme which will get them into university or workAll students receive same basic level of fundingEnables and supports a simple and transparent funding systemSubject to A level and GSE reformFundingper studentFunding per studentStudyprogrammesRaising Participation Age
8 What isChanging?Independent Specialist Providers, Special Schools, Non-Maintained Special Schools will now be funded through the National Funding Formula programme funding
9 What hasn’t changed?Academies, colleges, and providers will still get their funding from the Education Funding AgencyMaintained schools – funding via the Local AuthorityFunding system that is based on the data returned in census for schools/academies or Individualised Learner Record (ILR) for colleges and other FE providersWe still have a lagged student system……what is delivered in the current year, is the basis for funding in the next year
11 Shadow AllocationShows how the funding formula is calculated against data used in the 2012/13 allocationEach education institution gets a toolkit:a shadow allocation statement and technical notea shadow allocation spread sheet and Field GuideGives an opportunity to ask questions or comment on the new formulaHelps you to plan for any change resulting from the new funding formulaAllows for feedback and then the arrangements to be confirmed for 2013/14Allows us all to prepare for accurate allocations for 2013/14ISPs will get their shadow allocation statement later for illustrative purposes based on averages

24 ? ? ? Formula protection funding (FPF) Will be paid for at least three academic years until and including 2015/16, where the move to a basic funding rate per student would otherwise result in a reduction in funding per student.For shadow allocation calculated by comparing funding per student allocated for 2012/13 (excluding transitional protection) with funding per student for 2012/13The operation of formula protection funding for future years will depend on progress of Ministerial Working Group on the reforms for large programmes, A levels and GCSEs.Enables you to move on with curriculum reforms and simplification while final details are resolvedFor shadow allocations a 10% cap has been applied- no institution would gain by more than 10% funding per studentTP from 11/12Formula Protection FundingHigh Needs StudentsStudent Support Funding???

26 ? ? ? High Needs Students (HNS) This is funding for students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities and/or special educational needs with support costs above £6,000There’s a system based on the same principles for all children and young people from ages 0 – 24It is called place plus – places are funded by the EFA and any additional top-up funding by the home local authorityThere are three elements to High Needs FundingTP from 11/12Formula Protection FundingHigh Needs StudentsStudent Support Funding???
27 ? ? ? High Needs Students (HNS) The place – EFA Funded Element 1 This is the standard Funding Formula as we have described – it is based on lagged student numbers – this aspect rolls on from year to year.Element 2 This is the first £6,000 of additional support – numbers are calculated based on information provided by the local authority about the number of places it is going to commission from each institution and the EFA adds £6,000 for each place to the allocation – completing the place funding.The Plus – Top up Funding – LA FundedElement 3 any funding the individual requires above the first two elements is negotiated and agreed with the student’s home LA.TP from 11/12Formula Protection FundingHigh Needs StudentsStudent Support Funding???

LAs will confirm amended forecasts where applicable.End Nov/early Dec EFA will share 13/14 HNS forecasts with LAs and institutions.End January , learner number statements will be issued to all institutions.End of March, institutions have received their funding allocation for 2013/14. This will include Element 1 funding for HNS on a lagged basis, and Element 2 on the basis of LA commissioning.LAs will have completed the negotiations for Element 3 with institutions prior to the start of the academic year.TTP from 11/12Formula Protection FundingHigh Needs StudentsStudent Support Funding???
