  • Price and Funding

    Fully funded for those who are 16 - 18 (or up to 24 with an Education, Health and Care Plan -EHCP) who are unemployed or on a low salary, lived in the UK for the 3 previous years, and must be able to fully commit to a full-time programme.

    • A 16- to 18-year-old student is a student who is aged 16, 17 or 18 on 31 August 2023. Such students are normally eligible for ESFA young people’s funding, subject to the other regulations in this guidance.
    • To maintain eligibility for funding for individual students during a learning programme, a wider definition is used by the funding bodies. A student who was aged 16, 17 or 18 on 31 August at the start of the funding year when they began a learning programme, as recorded on their learning agreement, continues to be funded as a 16 to 18-year-old student. If they become 19 years old during their learning programme such students are funded at 16 to 18 rates to complete their learning programmes.
    • A learning programme comprises all of a student’s activities that lead to a set of outcomes agreed with the student as part of their information, advice and guidance (IAG) process. A learning programme may be composed of one or more learning aims and may span more than one funding year. A learning programme will generally be centred around learning aims at a single level, with a minority of, if any, learning aims at a different level being used to support the wider needs of the student (for example, a GCSE in mathematics may be appropriate for a student studying non-mathematical A levels). An A-level subject taken over 2 years is a single learning programme, (as is an AS level and an A level in the same subject) whereas progression from GCSEs to A levels is 2 separate learning programmes.
    • Students aged 19 to 24 on 31 August 2023 that have an EHC Plan are eligible for young people’s funding by ESFA, subject to the other paragraphs in this guidance. All other students aged 19 and over on 31 August 2023 would not normally be funded at young people’s rates.

    You will be advised regarding your funding eligibility by an LLC Recruitment Advisor.
