1 Changes to EFA funding for year olds

2  Funding formula is now embedded and there are very few changes for 2015 to 16  Transitional protection (2010 spending review) no longer available  Protection for 18 year old changes no longer available  Formula protection funding continues in 2015 to 16, and HNS process consolidated – 2015 to 16 will be based on 2014 to 15 allocations  Funding letter published in October confirmed the arrangements for 2015 to 16 Looking ahead to 2015 to 16 academic year

3  FPF was introduced for 2013 to 14 to be paid for three academic years, until and including 2015 to 16  For 2015 to 16 the calculation will be similar to that in 14/15 – i.e. FPF can never be greater than the amount in 13/14, but may be less.  Reduce from any gains in the formula – e.g. where the value of the formula increases due to improved retention, more students attracting disadvantage, increased programme size, for example, FPF will reduce  Stay the same if the value of the formula reduces  Should the value of the formula exceed the funding per student paid in 2012 to 13 then the formula, net of FPF, is paid in full Formula protection funding (FPF)

4 Maths and English condition of funding From 2014 to 15 a student that doesn’t have a grade C or above GCSE in maths and English, must continue to study the subject at either GCSE or stepping stone qualification For 2014 only, the condition of funding only applies to students commencing a new study programme, for example if a student in 2013/14 was studying AS qualifications the condition of funding would not apply to them when doing A2 in 2014 to 15 Exemptions if the student has: –an overseas qualification regarded as equivalent to a grade C –a learning difficulty that prevents them from learning at GCSE or stepping stone qualification Data from 2014 will inform allocations in 2016/17 From 2015 to 16 Full-time students with grade D GCSE must only take GCSE

5 2016/17 Large Programmes Ministers have decided that when Formula Protection Funding ends, in 2016/17, increased programme funding will apply to a small number of study programmes: 10% uplift to the base rate for study programmes of 4 A levels and 20% for study programmes of 5 A levels where the student passes 4 or 5 A levels respectively at grade B; For students that are enrolled on 5 A levels that get 4 Bs the 10% uplift will apply 20% uplift to the base rate for the full level 3 International Baccalaureate where the student achieves 28 points; 10% uplift to the base rate for Technical Baccalaureate programmes that are the equivalent of four A levels in size, and 20% for those that are the size of the full level 3 International Baccalaureate or larger, on the basis of qualifications passed. When the new Tech Level and Core Maths grading requirements come into effect this will also be taken into account. Details about programmes which meet the Technical Baccalaureate performance measure requirements are available on GOV.UK.which meet the Technical Baccalaureate performance measure Specialist land based programmes will attract a programme weighting of 1.75

6 16-19 Accountabilities The five headline measures are: Progress Attainment English and maths progress measure Retention Destinations

7 16-19 Accountabilities Technical guide published October: st16/documents/technical_guide.pdf st16/documents/technical_guide.pdf

8 A-Level Reform & Funding In funding terms, no impact from changes. Funding based on planned hours and retention each year. Decisions about which qualifications to offer lie with the school – what is best for learner progression?

9 Traineeships Consultation Over 10,000 participants 2013/14 https://www.gov.uk/government/consultation s/traineeships-funding-reform-in-england Give providers greater flexibility in delivery of work preparation training Align eligibility across age ranges (from January 2015) Better use of destination and progression data Simplified funding arrangements
