    • Principles of Funding Learning
          • The funding provided to schools, colleges and other providers should reflect the directly incurred costs of efficiently delivered provision (with an appropriate contribution to overheads) within the national funding framework and rates
          • All LSC-funded providers should:
            • claim funding at standard learner number (SLN) rates to reflect the costs of delivery and ensure that multiple funding for provision is not claimed
            • consider guided learning hours (glh) as the key driver of costs incurred when determining the level of funding claimed in 16–18 and adult learner-responsive funding systems
            • consider visits to the workplace for skills development and/or assessment (together with any associated group-based glh) as the key driver of costs incurred when determining the level of funding claimed in the employer-responsive funding model
            • etc, etc.
    Some Background
  • 5. Assigning Funding Rates Learner Responsive Models
  • 6. Assigning Funding Rates
    • Employer Responsive Model
          • Activity Costs (Apprenticeships)
            • SSC advises LSC on expected/likely delivery of activity for a Framework
            • Activity validated and passed through costing/rates model to determine framework SLN and then derive Main Aim, Tech Cert and Key Skills SLN Values
          • Activity Costs (Train to Gain)
            • Credit, GLH and other info tells us about the likely delivery of the qualification
          • Reviews
            • External consultant used to conduct specific reviews
  • 7. Reviewing Funding Rates
      • GLH
            • ‘ Waglh’ annual rates review
            • Planned GLH recorded on ILRs
            • Analysis by individual qualification and several aggregates conducted annually
            • Where the recorded GLH is significantly different to the rate adjustments are made following advice from a sector-based advisory group
      • Activity
            • 09/10 started collecting ‘planned activity’ on ILR
            • Intention to conduct similar reviews to above but using activity rather than GLH
            • Initially will prompt further review rather than direct rate adjustments
  • 8. Issues and Opportunities
      • Credit
            • Regulated measure of ‘size’ of qualifications
            • Based on notional learning time – some of which is guided
      • Purpose
            • Tells us more about likely delivery method (competency based/workplace delivery?)
      • Systems and Processes
            • QCF has developed quickly and with a ‘belt and braces’ approach
            • Processes are settling down across multiple organisations
            • Required information is not always readily available
