    Hello,
    We have a potential learner who has finished uni and wants to start our course as it’s a career he wants to go into. He is unemployed but doesn’t claim unemployment but does DLA. Can DLA be used to qualify for funding or would he need to be signed on at the job centre?
    Thanks,
    Jenna

    Hi Jenna,

    This would be covered by paragraph 150 of the AEB funding rules, at the training provider’s discretion:

    Providers may also use their discretion to fully fund other learners if both of the following apply. The learner:

    150.1 receives other state benefits (not listed in paragraph 149) and earns either less than 16 times the appropriate age-related rate of the national minimum wage / national living wage a week, or £338 a month (individual claims) or £541 a month (household claims)

    150.2 wants to be employed, or progress into more sustainable employment, they earn either less than 16 times the appropriate age-related rate of the national minimum wage / national living wage a week, or £338 a month (individual claims) or £541 a month (household claims) and you are satisfied the learning is directly relevant to their employment prospects and the local labour market needs
