99No Skills Funding Agency or EFA funding for this learning aim

The provider must indicate in this field the funding model which applies to the funding for the programme or learning aim.

This field only identifies the funding model being used to fund the learning aim and does not identify who the funding has been received from. To identify which agency is funding the learning aim, the Sources of funding must be completed in the Instance.LearningDeliveryFAM entity.

For further details of learner eligibility for funding, please refer to the provider support manual. Once a provider has identified the Funding model, including ‘No Skills Funding Agency or Education Funding Agency (EFA) funding for this learning aim’, it must not be changed other than to correct a mistake.

Adult Safeguarded Learning (ASL) funding

If code 10 is used then the type of ASL activity being undertaken must be identified in the Instance.LearningDeliveryFAM entity.

Adult Safeguarded Learning is now known as Community Learning, however it will continue to be recorded under the ASL type code for 12/13.

Other Skills Funding Agency/EFA funding models

Code 80 is only for use by students starting their learning aim prior to 1st August 2010.

Code 82 should be used for OLASS provision where the learner is aged 15 - 17.

Formal First Steps (FFS) provision

For FFS provision which is regulated provision and starts after 1 August 2012, all providers will be able to claim on a formula basis. This should be recorded using Instance.FUNDMODEL = 22 or 45. Institutions delivering classroom learning should use code 22 and private training providers should use code 45 plus the LearningDeliveryFAM.LEARNDELFAMTYPE of LDM and LearningDeliveryFAM.LEARNDELFAMCODE of 125. Non-regulated FFS steps provision should be recorded using Funding model 81.

Funding claims for non regulated FFS provision for providers paid on actual must be made by the Training Provider Statement (TPS). Please refer to the information authority website for further information.

All FFS learning (both regulated and non-regulated) must be identified by recording a LearningDeliveryFAM.LEARNDELFAMTYPE of First Steps Indicator (FSI) and a LearningDeliveryFAM.LEARNDELFAMCODE of 1.

Non funded learning aims

Code 99 should be used when the learning aim is not funded by the Skills Funding Agency or EFA. This includes learning aims where the full cost is paid for by the learner or their employer. It also includes learning aims delivered on behalf of another provider (which may be directly in receipt of Skills Funding Agency or EFA funding for them), that is learning aims that are sub-contracted in to the provider.

Records for other types of non-funded provision are not required from HEI providers.

For 2012/13 the Skills Funding Agency will continue to fund adult learners using either the Adult Learner Responsive (ALR) or Employer Responsive (ER) funding models. These funding models broadly match to either classroom or workplace learning delivered under the single adult skills budget. The definition of classroom and workplace learning can be found in the Skills Funding Agency’s funding guidance, and there is further information in the ILR provider support manual.

From 2012/13, EFA will be replacing YPLA. More information about EFA replacing YPLA can be found on the Department for Education website.

For more information on Field status, please see ILR specification.
