New funding rates for functional skills english and maths will be brought forward to January 2024, the government’s director for apprenticeships has announced. Kate Ridley-Moy told the Association of Employment and Learning Providers’ conference, that the DfE will fast-track the uplift after originally planning to introduce it at the start of the 2024/25 academic year. From January, all apprentices who have not gained their level 2 english and maths qualification will have their funding lifted to match the adult education budget – moving the rate up by 54 per cent from £471 to £724 increase. It will, however, only apply to new starters and not those already on programme. Click here for more.
