A new approach to adult funding approvals
The list of qualifications that will be funded at the start of the funding year was issued on 1 July 2015. The next update to the list will then be due on 1 October 2015. The catalogues are published on gov.uk and hub updates follow shortly thereafter.
For SFA funding, GCSE, Functional Skills and Cambridge Progression qualifications (Entry to Level 1) are funded, with individual Cambridge Progression units funded through the unit offer.
English and maths
Following a DfE announcement about the extension of the list of qualifications that will satisfy the funding condition, the following Cambridge Progression qualifications will meet this requirement:
The Cambridge Progression suite of qualifications are available from Entry Level to Level 2 and focus on the fundamentals of adult learning in English and Maths - core skills and knowledge, simple assessment and a framework of bite-sized, credit-based units.
These qualifications gained an explicit mention in the ETF report for their design which specifically develops skills and concepts necessary in GCSE, ie that they are stepping stone qualifications.
The qualifications can be delivered as a stand-alone programme or provide the foundation for other programmes of study such as English and maths GCSE or Functional Skills.
The qualifications are approved for students aged 14+ and currently recognised for delivery in England and Northern Ireland.
