Year-end funding claims for 2017 to 2018

Year-end funding claims for 2017 to 2018

The year-end funding claims process is nearly upon us.

Providers must submit a year-end funding claim by 4pm on Friday 21 September 2018 on the Hub.

For the first time, this year’s claim will include 16-19 funding.

Providers will therefore need to submit a claim if they receive funds through:

  • a grant for Adult Education Budget (AEB)
  • a grant for 16-19 Funding
  • a grant with an Advanced Learner Loans Bursary contract
  • a Learner Support contract
  • a Community Learning contract

The form will be available following the R13 data collection from Monday 17 September at 9am.

The form will be pre-populated with earnings following the R13 data return. Providers will be able to enter additional forecasted expenditure on the form.

Once providers have submitted a claim in the Hub, they will also be able to view it on the Skills Funding Service within 15 minutes.

Providers will not be able to complete the form after the deadline on Friday 21 September 2018.

The funding claims guidance for the 2017 to 2018 academic year can be found on whilst the 16 to 19 education funding guidance is also here. A technical user guide to help access and complete the form is available here.

In October 2018, we will review providers 2018 to 2019 adult education budget grant allocation against their year-end claim. If the claim is significantly less than their allocation, they may be in scope for a reduction. It is therefore important that providers submit an accurate and timely year-end funding claim. This does not affect AEB contracts for services.

If you have any queries about submitting a claim please contact the service desk:
