1 Funding Formula for 2013/14 Ivor Miskelly Planning Manager

2 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 18 th 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 Raising Participation Age Funding per student Study programmes Raising Participation Age

3 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 Study Programmes Funding per student Study programmes Raising Participation Age

4 Funding per student 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 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 Study programmes Raising Participation Age

5 Independent Specialist Providers, Special Schools, Non-Maintained Special Schools will now be funded through the National Funding Formula programme funding What is Changing?

6 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

7 The new funding formula Total Programme Funding Programme Cost Weighting Disadvantage Funding Area Cost Allowance Student Numbers National Funding Rate per student Retention Factor ()

8 This is a count of students to be funded Must meet qualifying period of 2 weeks or 6 weeks- will not fund programmes under 2 weeks Based on autumn census or ILR return Either full time = > 540 hours Or Part Time = < 540 hours For shadow allocations and 2013/14 Band 4 = full time The bottom band treated as Full Time Equivalent (FTE), that is a proportion of 600 Age groups and are shown separately on the statement but treated the same Program Cost Weighting Disadvantag Funding Area Cost Allowance National Funding Rate per student Retention Factor () Student Numbers Student numbers Student status Hours required per year Full time540 + Band Band Band Band 1 up to 280

9 Single National Full Time funding rate per student expressed in £ All year olds in sixth forms, colleges and independent providers are funded at the same national funding rate Out of scope: Youth Contract, Young Offenders, Apprenticeships and European Social Fund (ESF) This is the final element of the formula fixed by the EFA. 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 Program Cost Weighting Disadvantag Funding Area Cost Allowance Student Numbers Retention Factor ( ) National Funding Rate per student The National Funding Rate

10 A FT rate based on circa 600 hours Three part time rates for bands 2,3,4 Each funded at mid-point of the band For Band 4 ( hours) EFA will, for 13/14, fund at the FT rate Band 1 (below 280 hours) funded as a proportion of 600 hours ie 150 hours gets 25% of the National Full Time funding Rate Program Cost Weighting Disadvantag Funding Area Cost Allowance Student Numbers Retention Factor ( ) National Funding Rate per student Part Time Funding rates Student Number status Hours funded at… Part time Rate Full time600£3,900 Band 4 600£3,900 Band 3 405£2633 Band 2 320£2080 Band 1 % of 600% of £3,900

11 Success no longer used in funding, a retention factor is now used Applied at student level, not qualification level Retained means still studying a core aim on planned end date or leaves early and is recorded as completed the core aim For academic programmes – still studying one of the academic aims For vocational programmes still studying the core aim Retention FACTOR =half way point between Retention RATE and 100% Student Retention and funding Funding Leaves before qualifying period 0 Leaves before planned end and not recorded as completed 50% Retained to planned end date and recorded as completed 100% Leaves before planned end date and recorded as completed 100% Program Cost Weighting Disadvantag Funding Area Cost Allowance Student Numbers National Funding Rate per student ( ) Retention Factor Number of students completed Number of students started

12 Recognition that some vocational subjects are more expensive to teach than others Applied to the student’s whole programme Determined by the student’s core aim ie A Levels or substantial vocational qualification All academic programmes uplifted by one weight, which has been determined by merging the 2 current academic weightings and low cost vocational programmes and rebasing these as 1, Vocational Programme Weighting categories are being reduced in number and re-set to make it simpler: applied at sector subject areas Cost Weighting Category 2012/13 average Proposed 2013/14 Base Medium High Specialist Disadvantag Funding Area Cost Allowance Student Numbers National Funding Rate per student Retention Factor ( ) Programme Cost Weighting Still under review- potential to change for 13/14

13 Recognises that some students require additional support to participate and achieve if we are to achieve full participation and improve attainment Principle is to create a single budget that institutions use as they see fit Disadvantage Funding Economic Deprivation Prior Attainment Program Cost Weighting Area Cost Allowance Student Numbers National Funding Rate per student Retention Factor ( ) Disadvantage Funding

14 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% Block one: Disadvantage Funding Economic Deprivation Additional categories are no longer eligible Care Leavers attract a standard uplift- rate Program Cost Weighting Area Cost Allowance Student Numbers National Funding Rate per student Retention Factor ( ) Disadvantage Funding

15 Prior Attainment Acknowledges the additional cost of students who need extra learning support Based on student’s achievement of GCSE English and Maths at end of Year 11 Funding rate for shadow allocations = £450 Flat rate for part time bands 2 and 3 = £274 Pro rata as per programme costs for band 1 Should not assume these rates for 13/14 Block two: Program Cost Weighting Area Cost Allowance Student Numbers National Funding Rate per student Retention Factor ( ) Disadvantage Funding Example Maths below grade C English below grade C Funding attracted per student (£) Student 1yes*Rate x1 Student 2yes*Rate x1 Student 3yes *Rate x2 Used to be graduated payments based on student’s grades Now only a flat rate based on non-achievement of grade C

17 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 the EFA will remove the next tranche of transitional protection resulting from the funding changes introduced in 2011/12 as previously advised ? TP from 11/12 ?? High Needs Students Student Support Funding Formula Protection Funding Total Programme Funding

18 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 ?? High Needs Students Student Support Funding Formula Protection Funding Total Programme Funding

19 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 o FPF of £500/student is included in the 2012/13 shadow allocation o For 2013/14 a similar calculation will be carried out using updated data, amount will vary with both volumes and data ?

20 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 ?? High Needs Students Student Support Funding Formula Protection Funding Total Programme Funding

21 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 ? TP from 11/12 ??

22 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. ? TP from 11/12 ??
