Success no longer used in funding, a

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

Block one:
• Based on student’s home postcode
• Deprivation is calculated using Index of
Multiple Deprivation 2010. 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

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.
• Calculated by comparing funding per student allocated for 2013/14
(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

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

The place – EFA Funded
• Element 1 This is the standard 16-19 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
