The Young People’s Learning Agency has confirmed they will, in exceptional circumstances, continue to fund non-accredited provision for 16-18 year-olds. Their e-bulletin states:

“In light of the publication of the Government’s response to the Wolf Review of Vocational Education the DfE has agreed that the YPLA should continue to fund – for a further year only – provider provision and learning aims recorded through generic class codes (e.g. Z9OP, ZILSK, Z9V, etc).”

    This is potentially of enormous benefit to our ESOL young learners who come to us with no prior formal education in any language. We had planned to fund their provision through the use of the E1 certificate in Personal Progress but this is not at all ideal. We shall certainly now pursue the possibility of returning their provision to a non-accredited status.
