Education funding guide

Year of Publication: 

Preparing for Adulthood has produced a quick guide to education funding for people aged 16 - 25 who have special educational needs and/or a disability.

This guide provides information on the way the Education & Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) and, in some cases, local authorities will calculate and allocate funding to institutions who provide education to young people with SEND. The guide provides a summary of the structure of the funding system and provides a quick reference guide; further information is available from the links in the document. 

This guide does not and is not intended to replace published ESFA funding rules and regulations on ESFA funded institutions and local authorities must abide by and refer to the latest published funding rules, conditions and regulations at all times.
