1 16-19 Funding Workshop FETN Conference: 06 December 2013 Kevin Street Senior Manager Funding Development

2 General Environment Whats on your mind? Themes Emerging Worries for 2014/15? FPF – ALS and reading your allocations statement HNS Allocations Timeline 2 In Outline

3 3 13/14 – the Year of the Big Change Funding per student Study programmes Raising Participation Age

4 Planned hours for funding Directly relevant to the study programme Relevant Explicit in the Learning Plan or Timetable Planned Hours that are supervised and/or organised by the institution Supervised Hours that are quality assured by the institution Quality Assured Hours that are within an institutions normal working pattern Normal Working Pattern Where it meets the criteria set out above, is time limited and the weekly hours do not exceed the students planned weekly hours for the overall study programme Study Leave

5 Hours that do not count for funding Voluntary extra-curricular activities and clubs delivered during breaks or outside normal working pattern Voluntary Study that is homework or independent study/research that is not timetabled Homework Employment or work experience organised by anyone other than by or on behalf of the provider Employment Volunteering or community activities that are not organised by or on behalf of the provider Volunteering

6 Core Aims - Condensed Delivery Changing a core aim is a significant change to a students programme that should not be taken lightly. We would expect the vast majority of students will have a finalised core aim, (vocational qualification or work experience) within 12 weeks of starting. Condensed delivery Where institutions condense delivery into a significant number of hours over a short period of time, we would expect this to lead to excellent results, as demonstrated through qualification success rates and positive destinations for young people. We will monitor the delivery and value for money of compressed programmes during 2013/14.

7 Work experience-developments From 2014/15 the way non-qualification activity is recorded will change Work Experience will need to have taken place within an EXTERNAL employers workplace Simulated work environments should be separately recorded as non-qualification activity Institutions/providers need to put arrangements in place to achieve this during 2013/14 Activity in, for example, a college crèche or restaurant would be classified as protected and would not count as external work experience

8 English and Maths condition of funding (1) From September 2013, students who do not hold an A*-C in English or maths will need to continue to study towards this through: GCSE/iGCSE, or Functional Skills, Free Standing Maths or ESOL qualifications as stepping stones to GCSE. This is a condition of funding from the next academic year. This means any student recruited from 1 August 2014 without at least a GCSE grade C in these subjects and not registered to work towards this level will not be counted for your funding allocation for 2016/17

9 English and Maths condition of funding (2) Students entering post-16 education with a grade D GCSE in English and/or maths will be expected to be enrolled on a GCSE course Students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities (LDD) who are capable of taking and achieving maths and English qualifications should do so, studying to the appropriate level Some students with complex LDD might be better served by other types of English and maths teaching and may be exempt from the funding condition where appropriate – this will depend on the students initial assessment Enrolments in 2014/15 will have a direct impact on funding in 2016/17 allocations

10 The basic 16-19 formula including programme weightings Traineeships 14-16 year olds 10 14/15 – Whats not going to change

11 Savings for the 15-16 financial year 14/15 value for basic rate per student 14/15 value for disadvantage element based on English and Maths GCSEs Large programmes after 15/16 11 Still to come ……

12 For colleges who got it in 13/14: If you earn £x more per student through formula in your 14/15 allocation than for 13/14, your 14/15 FPF is reduced by £x per student from its 13/14 level. So your total £ per student is the same as 13/14. If you earn £y fewer per student through formula in your 14/15 allocation than for 13/14, your 14/15 FPF is fixed at its 13/14 level per student. So your total allocation per student is £y less than in 13/14. 12 How Formula Protection Funding will work in 14/15

13 Formula Protection Funding (1) £500 £4,500 £4,300 £3,800 12/13 13/14 14/15 Formula down FPF the same Funding per student reduces £500

14 £4,500 £4,200 £4,000 £500 £300 12/13 13/14 14/15 Formula up FPF Down Same Funding per Student Formula Protection Funding (2)

15 £4700 £4,500 £4,000 £500 12/13 13/14 14/15 £4,700 per student from the formula Formula Protection Funding (3)

16 High Needs Students -Why change? A single HNS system 3-25 Integrated commissioning by local authorities (LAs) Personalised budgets New rights for young people and their families Control of costs

17 2014 to 2015 – steady the ship Better dialogue between LAs and institutions since July 13 2012/13 actual learner number data shared with LAs LAs to declare 2013 to 2014 actuals 2014/15 numbers to deviate from 2013/14 only where there are significant changes that LAs know will happen Published timescales – decisions by May, contracts signed by June

18 Improved Communications We have created a new high needs webpage, bringing together information for LAs and institutions into a single place to improve access – fa/a00228993/hn-funding-information fa/a00228993/hn-funding-information On this webpage, we have published Additional information on the 16-24 high needs funding arrangements which provides further detail on the material covered today
