The Role of the YPLA is to allocate funds through a nationally determined and consistent funding process, and within budgets made available by government. We will ensure that funds transfer to those providers, either directly, through local authorities or through the Skills Funding Agency, and will consider MLP and satisfactory Ofsted inspection outcomes as a condition of funding.
Local authorities, working with their partners may shape provision in their area by identifying gaps, enabling new provision and developing the market. Our network of nine regional offices are well placed to foster a close working relationship with all our partners and provide a responsible, high-quality service.
