Funding the FLT
There are no bespoke funding arrangements for the Foundation Learning Tier (FLT). FLT personalised learning programmes are destination-led programmes of flexible content and duration to support individual progression. These personalised programmes are funded through the LSC’s standard demand-led funding mechanism. Therefore all requirements of the funding guidance apply to the FLT. This section of the web site provides information, tools, presentation materials, guidance and examples of how the demand-led funding mechanism is applied to FLT programmes.
As a transition measure, during 2009/10 only, FLT programmes can also be funded using the weekly funding methodology for E2E. For clarity, where weekly funding is claimed there is no further funding for the qualifications delivered, for entitlement (for 16-18 year olds) or for Additional Learning Support (ALS). Learners placed with specialist providers for those with LLDD continue to be funded as described in Funding Guidance: Placement for Learners with Learning Difficulties and/or Disabilities. The intention is to work towards using the demand-led funding methodology to fund these learners programmes in future.
