Annal Nayyar Blogs 16-19 funding update: There is just one week left to go back to the EFA and make a business case to change the data in the 16-19 Student Number Statement 2013/14.

The full workbooks containing the data sources and how the statement data has been arrived at are now on the Information Management Portal. The DfE urge you all to look through these to both understand, and if appropriate, challenge them.

There are several important things I have noticed when looking through the data – and they do have funding implications.

Example

From 2013/14 students will be funded per-programme as we know.  The programme will be cost weighted based on the cost weighting of the core learning aim.  This is not an issue if the student is studying, for example, an A Level programme of Biology, Maths, English and History where all the learning aims have the same cost weighting of 1.00 (Base banding, so no uplift).  However, if they are studying a programme of mixed learning aims with different cost weightings, who decides what the core aim should be and therefore what the overall programme weighting would be?
