This document details which individuals can be funded by the Skills Funding Agency and the level of government subsidy that they can receive in order to help pay for the costs of learning. It replaces previous guidance issued jointly with the Young People’s Learning Agency (YPLA) in 2010/11 and by the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) prior to that. Therefore, this document is vitally important to those colleges and training organisations that recruit learners who will be funded by the Agency. This includes mainstream provision such Adult Skills (previously known as Adult Learner Responsive and Train to Gain), Apprenticeships, the Joint Investment Programme, European Social Funded activity and Adult Safeguarded Learning. It also applies to all trials, project and pilots that the Agency funds. Unless explicitly stated in this document or Funding Requirements these rules apply to all learners funded by the Agency in 2011/12, whether a new learner starting an aim or programme for the first time in 2011/12 or a learner who is continuing a learning aim or programme which was started prior to 2011/12.
