return to field list
This field identifies the funding model to be applied when calculating funding for this learning aim.
All instances at providers in England where Instance.FESTUMK = 1, 3, 4 or 5 and Instance.REDUCEDI = 00 or 01.
|Valid entries and labels|
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.
16-19 EFA funding model
All learning aims undertaken as part of a 16-19 study programme, including 16-18 Traineeship programmes, must be recorded using code 25, 16-19 EFA funding. Learning aims undertaken by learners aged 19 to 24 with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan are also coded 25. This does not apply to learners undertaking an apprenticeship programme, who are funded using Funding model 35, 'Adult skills funding'.
Adult skills funding model
Code 35 - Adult Skills - should be used for all classroom or workplace provision. It should also be used for apprenticeship frameworks (including for 16-18 apprenticeships) that started prior to 1 May 2017, funded through the Adult Skills 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 learning aims undertaken as part of an apprenticeship standard that started prior to 1 May 2017, funded through the Trailblazer funding model. It should also be used for all other SFA funded 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 Apprenticeship Standards.
Apprenticeships funding model
Use code 36 for all new starts on funded apprenticeship programmes on or after 1 May 2017. This includes both Apprenticeship Frameworks and Apprenticeship Standards.
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:
