Event Details

ESFA study programme funding for 16 to 19 year-olds (excluding apprenticeships) is changing again for 2020/21 and the double-act (Nick and Karl) are running a one-off workshop ahead of the critical ILR R04 data return.

It is vital all MIS and funding staff understand the changes as well as the relationship between funding and data. For example, for funding purposes as part of lagged student numbers, do they all fully appreciate the financial implications of a correct start and end date in the ILR, or coding for the Study Programme core aim?

A very practical workshop, delivered by Nick Linford (author of the Hands-on guide to post-16 funding) and Karl Bentley, ILR and funding auditor at RSM, with lots of worked examples and materials to take away. Attendees will leave armed with vital knowledge.

This is one of those one-off funding workshops 'not to be missed'.

This 16-19 funding workshop is brought to you by Nick Linford, author of the Complete Guide to Funding Apprenticeships and both the Hands-on guide to post-16 funding and the Hands-on guide to post-16 performance and data published by Pearson.
