ESFA funded adult education budget 2019 to 2020 illustrative allocations issued

To aid with planning - illustrative adult education budget allocations issued for 2019 to 2020 years


We have now issued illustrative ESFA adult education budget (AEB) allocations for the 2019 to 2020 funding year to providers. We have issued these to assist providers with their planning. We will confirm allocation values before the end of March 2019.

We will also publish provisional 2017 to 2018 delivery data, showing in which of the devolved areas the delivery took place and segmented by the different elements of AEB. In ensuring ESFA AEB allocations are distributed fairly, and in line with the budget set, we are using 2017 to 2018 delivery and residence data as part of our allocation calculation.

These allocations are in line with the move to combined authority commissioning and with the approach already thoroughly communicated to the sector.

The illustrative allocations and the provisional data are not final and may be subject to change.
