Notes

The provider must indicate in this field the funding model which applies to the programme aim 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 Source of funding in the Learning Delivery Funding and Monitoring fields, must also be completed.

For further details of learner eligibility for funding, refer to the funding documentation.

The Funding models used for both EFA and Skills Funding Agency learning aims have been changed for 2013/14 and will need to be re-coded for learning aims that started prior to 1 August 2013. Providers should refer to the migration mapping information given in Appendix B for full details of the re-coding that is required.

16-19 EFA funding model

All learning aims undertaken as part of a 16-19 study programme, including 16-19 Traineeship programmes, must be recorded using code 25, 16-19 EFA funding.

Learners aged 16-25 with a Learning Difficulty Assessment (LDA) are funded by the EFA for 2013/14 and must be recorded using code 25, '16-19 funding'. This does not apply to learners undertaking an Apprenticeship programme who would be funded using code 35 'Adult skills funding' and funded by the SFA.

Adult skills funding model

This funding model should be used for all classroom or workplace provision.

16-18 Apprenticeships are funded through the Adult Skills Budget funding model.

Community Learning funding

If code 10 is used then the type of Community Learning activity being undertaken must be identified in the Learning Delivery Funding and Monitoring fields.

Other Skills Funding Agency/EFA funding models

Code 81 should be used for all other Skills Funding Agency provision which is not funded by the Adult skills funding model or ESF or Community Learning funded.

All learning aims starting on or after 1 August 2013 delivered through Instance.FUNDMODEL 81 and 82 should be identified using a Learning Delivery Monitoring code. Providers will be informed which code to use by the funding agency. New monitoring codes should be requested from the Information Authority. Providers will be informed which code to use by the funding agency. This does not apply to Trailblazer apprenticeships.

Non funded learning aims

Code 99 should be used for all learning aims that are not funded by the Skills Funding Agency or EFA. This includes learning aims where the full cost is paid for by the student 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.

Learning aims financed by 24+ Advanced learning loans must be recorded using code 99, no Skills Funding Agency funding or EFA funding, in this field and in the Learning Delivery Funding and Monitoring fields with codes LearningDeliveryFAM.LEARNDELFAMTYPE = ADL and LearningDeliveryFAM.LEARNDELFAMCODE = 1.

This field should be returned for learning aims that are not funded by the Skills Funding Agency or EFA in the following circumstances:

  • Delivered by an FE college
  • apprenticeships delivered by training organisations where delivered within the terms of a Skills Funding Agency contract or in other cases are sent on a voluntary basis
  • Financed by a 24+ Advanced learning loan.
