Event Details

In this technical workshop Nick Linford will take a detailed look at the key funding and eligibility elements of the ESFA’s Adult Education Budget (AEB) rules and rates for 2019/20. Nick will also share a dynamic AEB profiling calculator to support the creation of your own course file, as well as cover AEB performance policies (achievement rates, minimum standards and intervention) and the use of ESFA software. At a time of significant change heading towards devolution of the AEB budget, this workshop will ensure you leave being able to curriculum plan and fund your 2019/20 provision as effectively as possible.

With new and updated material, this workshop is suitable for those new to funding as well as the most experienced. And being a very practical workshop there are lots of worked examples and materials to take away, meaning attendees will leave armed with vital knowledge.

John Green, Chief Operating Officer at System Group said: "Excellent training day with loads of information imparted in an effective manner. Great value for money. I can take the learning from the day back to my organisation to improve compliance and efficiency. " Click here for more feedback from previous attendees.
