Additional 16-18 Allocations for 2009/10

In Budget 2009 additional funds were allocated to fund 54,500 additional places for 16-18 year olds. 20,000 of these places were to be allocated through a bidding process across all types of provider. All school sixth forms, colleges and E2E providers received an invitation to submit a business case for additional places by 15 May 2009.

The purpose of the additional funding was to ensure that the LSC could meet the September Guarantee and its commitment to those that are not in education, employment or training (NEET) in every area of the country.  This does not imply that all learners recruited above provider’s allocations will be funded.

Attached below are a briefing note on the process, the proformas used and the results of the scoring and moderation of these additional places. The spreadsheet gives the detailed scores, a notes page is included.
