2017-18 Post-16 Funding Allocation

09 February 2017

Colleges wanting to use the allocation calculation toolkit (ACT) to calculate their provisional funding should now be able to do this by logging into EFA Information Exchange. Guidance on understanding your ACT is available here. The SFA has also published version 1 of the adult education budget funding rates and formula document for the funding year 2017 to 2018. This document sets out the details of the funding system for the AEB and 16 to 18 SFA funded traineeships.

Schools and academies were able to access the toolkit for their information in early February 2017 (ASCL argued for this information to be available before half-term so that bursars can use the ‘quiet week’ if they wish, to build initial drafts of their budget).
