Event Details

At the end of august the ESFA updated their Adult Education Budget funding rules.

In this technical workshop Nick Linford will take a detailed look at the key funding and eligibility elements of the SFA’s Adult Education Budget (AEB) rules and rates for 2017/18. Suitable for those new to funding as well as the most experienced. At a time of significant change, this workshop will ensure you leave being able to curriculum plan and fund your 2017/18 provision as effectively as possible.

A very practical workshop with lots of worked examples and materials to take away, attendees will leave armed with vital knowledge.

Susan Craggs, Head of Adult and Communty Education at the Mary Ward Centre said: "Really useful information about AEB funding and curriculum planning. Good opportunity to reflect on the funding. Really well timed for curriculum planning. Nick delivers a really good session and manages to make 'dry' material interesting and engaging." Click here for more feedback from previous attendees.
