star this property answer text <p>The Adult Education Budget (AEB) currently supports 3 legal entitlements to full funding for eligible adult learners:</p><ul><li>English and maths, up to and including level 2, for individuals aged 19+, who have not previously attained a GCSE grade A* - C or grade 4, or higher.</li><li>First full qualification at level 2 for individuals aged 19 - 23.</li><li>First full qualification at level 3 for individuals aged 19 - 23.</li></ul><p> </p><p>A fourth legal entitlement to fully funded specified digital skills qualifications for adults, aged 19+, with no or low digital skills will come into effect from 1 August 2020.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, the AEB supports delivery of flexible tailored provision for adults up to level 2 which is either fully funded or co-funded depending on a learner’s age, prior attainment and circumstances.</p><p><strong> <br> </strong>For the 2019/20 academic year, the AEB is continuing a trial to support those in work on low incomes, which allows providers to fully fund eligible learners on low wages, who would otherwise be eligible for co-funding. The trial will apply in respect of learners who are resident outside of devolved areas.</p><p> </p><p>From August 2019, approximately 50% of the AEB has been devolved to 6 Mayoral Combined Authorities and the Mayor of London, through the Greater London Authority. They are now responsible for commissioning and funding AEB provision for learners resident in their areas.</p><p>The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) remains responsible for funding learners resident in non-devolved areas. For those learners, we will continue to consider how we can most effectively support learners. However, currently there are no current plans to extend full fee remission to full time carers under the ESFA AEB funding rules.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The government announced on 31 August 2019 that it will invest an extra £400 million in 16-19 education in 2020-21. This is the biggest injection of new money in a single year since 2010 and represents an increase of 7% in overall 16-19 funding. As part of this, the base rate of funding for all types of providers will be increased by 4.7% in academic year 2020-21, from £4,000 to £4,188. This extra funding will support all types of courses, including vocational subjects and as part of this, we have now announced that T Levels funding rates will also be increased by 4.7%.</p><p>The funding settlement for further education for adults aged 19 and over will be confirmed in due course. Additionally, funding for 2021-22 onwards will be considered in the full Spending Review next year.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Careers education is steadily improving across the country following publication of our careers strategy in December 2017.</p><p>We publish statutory guidance for schools and colleges, which sets out what they should do to provide independent careers guidance for year 8-13 students. This includes the requirement, commonly known as the Baker Clause, for schools to publish a policy statement, showing the opportunities for technical education and apprenticeship providers to talk to all year 8-13 pupils.</p><p>When we have found instances of non-compliance with these statutory duties, we have taken action. In January 2019, the former Minister for Apprenticeships and Skills (Anne Milton), my right hon. Friend for Guilford, wrote to 5 of the largest multi-academy trusts that had not yet published arrangements for provider access on all their academy websites to ask them to act to comply with the law. We also encourage providers to contact us if they are experiencing difficulties or have been blocked from going into schools, and we address this in such cases by writing to individual schools.</p>
