The YPLA was launched in April 2010 with the mission of championing education and training for young people in England.
We do this by providing financial support to young learners, by funding Academies for all their provision and by supporting local authorities to commission suitable education and training opportunities for all 16-19 year olds.
Subject to the passage of legislation, the Education Funding Agency will take over responsibility from the YPLA on 1st April 2012 for the funding of young people's education and training, including the increasing number of Academies.
The Academies Capital Maintenance Fund 2012-13 is now open for applications, with a four week application window. Academies are encouraged not to leave submission of applications to the final few days.
Sixth Form Colleges will receive letters, by post, on a short, but technically necessary consultation on Modification Orders that will amend SFC Instruments & Articles of Government from 1st April 2012.
We have started to write to Academies to give them their draft allocation for the 2012/13 Academic Year.
