ESFA: 16 to 19 study programme guidance for 2020 to 2021

The ESFA have published the 16 to 19 study programme guidance for the 2020 to 2021 academic year.

All students funded through the 16 to 19 funding methodology must be enrolled on a study programme or T Level programme, which typically combines qualifications and other activities, and is tailored to each student’s prior attainment and career goals.

The study programme guidance is designed to help providers understand their obligations and duties in relation to the provision of 16 to 19 study programmes in their institutions.
