Important Maths and English Funding Information Released

Important Maths and English Funding Information Released

Funding penalties for organisations who did not comply with funding conditions for English and maths in the 2014/15 academic year have been reduced, the Education Funding Agency (EFA) has announced.

In the last academic year, 97% of FE students aged 16 to 19 without a ‘good pass’ for GCSE English and/or maths continued to study the subjects, which is considered a success. As such, ministers have decided that a 50% funding reduction will be enforced on non-compliant providers, rather than the planned 100% reduction. There will also be a 5% tolerance applied, whereby institutions that have complied with rules for more than 95% of learners (by value) will earn a reprieve. These rules will be implemented for 2016/17 allocations.
