5 Future of 6th Form Funding

6 THE CASE FOR CHANGE Reform Group (DfES)

7 14-19 Reform objectives Boosting participation, progression and attainment An engaging curriculum with qualifications more valued by employers and HE Better guidance and support Full range of choices available in each local area Supported through funding system meeting principles set out in FE White Paper

8 14-19 Targets 90% participation at age 17 by 2015 Reduce the number of young people not in education, employment or training (NEET) 85% of 19 year olds attaining level 2 by 2013 Raise the participation age

9 Why? Post-16 training/skills are biggest weaknesses… Age stage WorkforceHE OECD ranking Post-16 participation rate Proportion of workforce with skills above Level 2 Research output Proportion of 4 year-olds enrolled in education 10 year old reading and literacy 15 year old mathematics and literacy Survival rate on academic courses 2 - 6

10 14-19 Reforms Entitlement for all young people to have access to 14 Diploma lines from 2013 To deliver this institutions will need to collaborate The funding will need to support this particularly: –learner choice driving funding allocations –a common funding system with comparable rates –incentivising institutions to improve participation, progression and achievement rates –a simple, transparent and easy to understand system, based on a relationship between LSC and providers

11 Diploma timetable 2008/09First teaching of Diplomas in ICT, Health & Social Care, Engineering, Creative & Media, Construction 2009/10Land based, Manufacturing, Hair and Beauty, Business Administration, Hospitality 2010/11Public services, Sport & leisure, Retail, Travel & Tourism entitlement in place

12 Future of 6th Form Funding

13 HOW THE SYSTEM WILL WORK

14 Key principles of the landscape To ensure every young person can exercise their entitlement and –undertake elements of programmes in other institution and –access a broad programme of learning With planning overseen by the partnership and –effective collaboration

15 The White Paper challenges us to develop a system which: –incentivises improved participation, progression and achievement factors Whilst being –transparent, simple and avoiding bureaucracy And providing –appropriate stability and certainty for planning Further Education Raising Skills: Improving life chances The Challenge

16 Principles of a demand led system Purchasing power devolved to employers and individuals Expanding choice and quality of provision Intervening in areas of market failure Building capacity Appropriate levels of planning Collaboration and competition Responsiveness to demand

17 Demand Led Models Apprenticeships Employer Responsive Model –18 Learner Driven Employer Driven Model Learner Responsive Model

18 Partnership Research needs and demand to meet entitlement Plan LA/LSC Review Provision against plan LA/LSC agree contributions to plan by discussion and agreement with schools, colleges and providers Allocation calculated How does it work?

19 Option 1: Strategic Commissioning Plan requirements Assess previous contribution and performance Plan changes and negotiated growth Allocation based on plan Review actual delivery Growth built into future baseline

20 14-19 plan requirements Assess previous contribution and performance Plan changes and negotiated growth Allocation based on previous year and plan Review actual delivery and reconciliation based on September recruitment Adjust allocation mid-year (up or down) Reconcile at Year-end Retrospective Adjustments (up and down) Option 2: Model Strategic Commissioning with reconciliation

21 Reconciliation ↑ £93.2M ↓ £49.4M

22 Reconciliation

23 ↑£100.2M ↓£33.2M Reconciliation

25 Declining pupil numbers in the future?

26 Balancing incentives and stability Create demand-led incentives Create stability and certainty for provider planning

27 Other significant changes for schools New formula involves success rates Revised data collection Disadvantage factor uses IMD 2004 Creation of ALS budget (from existing budget)

28 LLDD including SEN LLDD/SEN Costs ALS Formula Provision Costs

29 New Diplomas Collaborative arrangements Pre-16 “off site provision” Pre-16 “whole school funding” consultation Post-16 funding flow

30 Transitional protection Aim – to reduce the effects of funding changes that result directly from the formula May be similar to the Minimum Funding Floor in schools

31 Key Issues for Consultation Incentives v predictability Revised data - Early or accurate collection Disadvantage- Use of IMD 2004 ALS Allocation- Impact on rates Diplomas- Funding flow

32 Future of 6th Form Funding

33 THE NEW FUNDING FORMULA

34 Funding formula Standard learner number (SLN) x National Funding Rate x Provider Factor + Additional Learning Support (ALS) = FUNDING ALLOCATION OR OUTTURN IN £

35 Standard learner number Definition of a start - 6 weeks for longer courses Based on nominal guided learning hours for the qualifications each learner studies SLN = glh/450 with maximum of 1.75 –Calculated individually for each pupil Funding allocations use SLNs that are based on discussions each Autumn In-year monitoring using Schools Census data

36 National funding rate Announced annually by LSC In 2008/09 expected to be around £3,000 per SLN How does this compare with current rates?

37 Provider factor Calculated annually using previous data Provider factor contains –Programme weighting –Disadvantage (based on IMD 2004) –Area costs –Success factor (uses published success rates for each school) For 2008/09 funding allocations, the provider factor will be calculated using PLAMS 2006/07

38 Implications of the changes Maximum funding per pupil is calculated on individuals –lower level than now Funding per qualification is increased Success element increased

40 Additional learning support Lower level claims –Partly based on formula using prior attainment –Partly based on negotiation Higher level claims –Based on evolving SEN model

41 Funding trials Trials took part with 18 volunteer schools –These schools provided 2005/06 data in PLAMS format –LSC compared funding using new formula with actual allocations –Schools/LSC meetings and visits

42 PLAMS data 2006/7 Number of Sixth Forms

43 PLAMS v SPC data Numbers of Pupils SPC 361,249PLAMS 357,758Variation –1.0% Variations by schools

44 A levels Variations by schools Numbers of A-level subjects SPC 1,145,227 PLAMS 1,121,781 Variation –2.0%

45 Modelling for all Next steps –All schools will receive a comparison of PLAMS and September pupil count 2006/07 –Schools are asked to ensure June PLAMS submissions are accurate, with help from LSC –Comparisons of funding approaches are only accurate where SPC and PLAMS closely match
