    The AEB Funding & Performance Management Rules state –

    245. You must not use learner support funds for any of the following.
    245.1 essential equipment or facilities

      if the learner is eligible to full funding

    . However, these learners can get support funding for childcare, transport and residential costs

    246. You can use hardship funds for the following.
    246.1 course-related costs, including course trips, books and equipment (

      where costs are not included in the funding rate

    )

    Does this mean that Fully funded students in Hardship could be supported for Protective footwear in construction, knife sets in catering etc. ?

    What if students are co-funded ?

    How do we know what is included in the funding rate ?

    Thanks

    Hi Keef

    Traditionally it’s anything *essential* to do the course, so if they can’t do the course without knives then you can’t use learner support for it, they just have to have them.

    If it’s a slightly nicer/more extensive set of knives that you *recommend* people have, then that’s a different matter…
