Can anyone confirm if it will be OK to claim funding for a 16-18 yr old studying a single GCSE qualification in 13-14 – and whether their funding eligibility would change for a GCSE re-sit ?
Paragraph 40 of the EFA Funding Regulations (version 2) states that a learning programme can consist of ‘one or more learning aims’ so I hope we are interpretting this correctly but would welcome any feedback from providers with a larger 16-18yr old cohort than we currently have.
I don’t see why not. The re-take question is more tricky, unless it’s English or Maths in whihc case keep taking until they achieve a C or better. They will count as a part timer so are presuably going to be in employment – is the GCSE going to be the “with training bit”?
