The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) has updated the adult skills fund (ASF) funding rules guidance that was first published in March 2024, to clarify 2 points.

  1. When using the earnings threshold, you must apply this to the learner’s gross annual salary and exclude any benefits.
  2. You can fund unemployed learners using the ASF and we have added the unemployed definition back into the guidance.

In July, ESFA will issue version 2 of the ASF funding rules 2024 to 2025 to include performance management rules.
