Opening up opportunities for out of work people to achieve success, enhance their skills and knowledge, and find a career they love.

Did you know that there were 800,000 young people (aged 16 to 24 years) in the UK who were not in education, employment or training (NEET) during the period of July to September 2019?

Level 1 qualifications could hold the key for many in this situation, providing them with the foundation to success and a springboard for their careers. We work seamlessly with Training Providers and FE Colleges to deliver these qualifications and maximise outcomes, for both our Centres and their learners.

What is 16-19 funding?

Colleges, Training Providers, Schools and Academies receive annual funding allocations from the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) for the provision of 16 to 19 education.

In addition, the funding also assists special schools, special academies, independent learning providers (ILPs), local authorities (LEA’s), special post-16 institutions (SPIs) and some higher education institutions (HEIs). The funding can be used towards helping:

  • Students aged 16-19
  • Students up to the age of 25 when they have an education, health and care (EHC) plan
  • 14-16 year-olds who are directly enrolled into eligible FE institutions
  • Home educated students of compulsory school age at any FE college

In order to use the funding, Training Providers, FE Colleges and Prisons will need to engage with an Awarding Organisation. It just so happens that’s exactly what we are, and we like to do things a little differently.

How do we help to maximise your funding?

When we say we do things differently, we really mean it! From the very first meeting with Centres, we look to innovate and advise, offering insight into Curriculum planning and budgeting so that you can get the very best service.

We’ve developed a pricing structure that’s clear, comprehensive, and fair so you know exactly what you’re paying and there are no hidden surprises. We’ll help you drive down your cost per learner, and as our suite of qualifications covers a range of funding streams, you’ll be able to use multiple funds with us and make the most out of your budget.

Even better, our technical innovation allows us to deliver unrivalled turnaround of certificates: 24 hours for e-certificates and 48 hours for paper certificates. So you can get your learners the certificate they’ve been working so hard for faster than ever!
