1 16-19 Funding Formula for 2013/14 Shadow Allocations 2012/13
Venue Date 2012

2 Today’s agenda Introduction Shadow Allocations and the toolkit –
Welcome Supporting Government Policies Shadow Allocations and the toolkit – Programme Funding Disadvantage Protecting Funding High Needs Funding Student Support Next Steps

3 Objectives By the end of the session you will :
understand the recent developments in government policy and how these are supported by funding reform understand how the shadow allocation has been calculated and the supporting toolkit have 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 Institutions Funding per student Study programmes Raising 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 2013 For 17 year olds to their 18th birthday from Summer 2015 Applies to all those resident in England Enforcement deferred What counts as participation?... full time education (school, college or independent provider for at least 540 hours) home education Apprenticeship full-time work including at least 280 hours of education Funding per student Study programmes Raising Participation Age

6 Raising Participation Age
Study Programmes What are Study Programmes?... Applies to all year olds Students will take either academic programme or a substantial vocational qualification recognised by employers – these must help them secure skilled work or a university place Where appropriate students will also take part in work experience Students who don’t have GCSEs grade C in English and maths at 16 will continue to study these subjects Students who aren’t able to study a substantial qualification will take a programme of work experience and continue to develop their numeracy and literacy skills Funding per student Study programmes Raising Participation Age

7 Raising Participation Age
16-19 education was funded… Qualification by qualification Funding is unfit to support RPA Wolf found there to be perverse incentives which didn’t help raise standards System is very complex and opaque 16-19 education will be funded… student by student Increased focus on providing the student with a holistic study programme which will get them into university or work All students receive same basic level of funding Enables and supports a simple and transparent funding system Subject to A level and GSE reform Funding per student Funding per student Study programmes Raising Participation Age

8 What is Changing? 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 Agency Maintained schools – funding via the Local Authority Funding system that is based on the data returned in census for schools/academies or Individualised Learner Record (ILR) for colleges and other FE providers We still have a lagged student system… …what is delivered in the current year, is the basis for funding in the next year

10 Shadow Allocations for 2012/13

11 Shadow Allocation Shows how the funding formula is calculated against data used in the 2012/13 allocation Each education institution gets a toolkit: a shadow allocation statement and technical note a shadow allocation spread sheet and Field Guide Gives an opportunity to ask questions or comment on the new formula Helps you to plan for any change resulting from the new funding formula Allows for feedback and then the arrangements to be confirmed for 2013/14 Allows us all to prepare for accurate allocations for 2013/14 ISPs will get their shadow allocation statement later for illustrative purposes based on averages

It depends on how much learning is taking place across the country and the budget. The rate used in the shadow allocation is £3,900 The National Funding Rate for 2013/14 will be confirmed as part of the Spending Review decisions yet to be made

Disadvantage Funding Program Cost Weighting Area Cost Allowance Student Numbers National Funding Rate per student Retention Factor ( ) Disadvantage Funding Economic Deprivation Block one: Based on student’s home postcode Deprivation is calculated using Index of Multiple Deprivation This examines the student’s home area based on: income; employment; health and disability; education, skills and training; housing and services; living environment; and crime Uplift is between 8.4% and 33.6% Additional categories are no longer eligible Care Leavers attract a standard uplift- rate

23 ? ? ? 11/12 Transitional Protection
For Shadow allocations the transitional protection amount is the same as that included in the 12/13 allocation For 2013/14 we will remove the next tranche of transitional protection resulting from the funding changes introduced in 2011/12 as previously advised TP from 11/12 Formula Protection Funding High Needs Students Student Support Funding ? ? ?

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 2012/13 The 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 resolved For shadow allocations a 10% cap has been applied- no institution would gain by more than 10% funding per student TP from 11/12 Formula Protection Funding High Needs Students Student Support Funding ? ? ?

25 ? ? ? Formula protection funding (FPF) For example:
Funding per student at St Nowhere College is calculated at £4500 per student in 2012/13, the new methodology gives them £4000 per student FPF of £500/student is included in the 2012/13 shadow allocation For 2013/14 a similar calculation will be carried out using updated data, amount will vary with both volumes and data TP from 11/12 Formula Protection Funding High Needs Students Student 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 £6,000 There’s a system based on the same principles for all children and young people from ages 0 – 24 It is called place plus – places are funded by the EFA and any additional top-up funding by the home local authority There are three elements to High Needs Funding TP from 11/12 Formula Protection Funding High Needs Students Student 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 Funded Element 3 any funding the individual requires above the first two elements is negotiated and agreed with the student’s home LA .

28 HNS Timeline End Sept LAs confirm 2012/13 HNS student numbers and forecast 2013/14 High Needs places. End of Oct EFA complete data collection and checks, including clarification of forecasts which will impact on individual institutions. 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.

Funding to contribute to the costs of the standards required for residential provision to meet the care standards legislation This is included in the shadow allocation and will be payable on exactly the same basis as now but shown in cash not a factor £12,252 per institution plus £817 per student TP from 11/12 Formula Protection Funding High Needs Students Student Support Funding ? ? ?
