1 Community Learning Trust Responsiveness Fund GUIDANCE FOR APPLICANTS The CLT Responsiveness Fund is funding by Staffordshire Skills Funding Agency (SFA) through Neighbourhood Learning in Deprived Communities (NLDC) funding. The funding is for the delivery and benefit of training for the adults returning to learning. This funding is open to organisations to deliver a needs led project within Staffordshire. There is 250,000 available in total, with 130,000 for voluntary and third sector organisations only and 120,000 available for all adult learning providers. All projects will need to comply with Skills Funding Agency rules. Decisions on funding will be made by the Community Learning Trust Board Sub-Group based on: Funding priorities based on evidenced local needs An even geographical distribution of funds Alignment to the Business, Innovation and Skills New Challenges, New Chances Community Learning objectives ( see Appendix 1 of guidance document) Alignment to the Adult and Community Learning Service Commissioning priorities local and countywide ( see Appendix 2 of guidance document) Projects should: be delivered to adults 19 years and over have clear learning aims that will result in adults being better prepared to move on to further learning, work or volunteering be delivered by tutors with appropriate teaching qualifications They also: can have an aim of improving the local community can be centred on improving volunteers skills and qualifications can be accredited to level 1 if the course is not able to be funded through the Adult Skills Budget Staffordshire Community Learning Trust is a joint project between Staffordshire County Council Adult and Community Learning Service and adult learning providers from all sectors in the county. The Vision of the Trust is that: "Staffordshire has happy, healthy, well integrated and active communities that learn together, support each other, and enable all community members to prosper and thrive" CLT guidance 4 th June

2 Our belief is that adult learning is the property of the community and that all applications to this fund will have to clearly demonstrate local support for the project by reference to local consultation. More information about the Trust can be found at Programmes should be targeted at one or more of the following groups: Adults aged 19 years and over who are one or more of the following: Unemployed Economically inactive local residents in any Staffordshire district People with no or low qualifications. Adults with learning difficulties/disabilities. Adults from ethnic minority groups. Adults experiencing mental and/or physical health issues. Older people. Carers. Homeless adults and adults living in hostel accommodation Lone parents Volunteers Organisations can apply between July 2013 and March The sub-group will meet approximately every 6 weeks (dates can be found on the application and assessment document) with applications to be received 1 week before the sub-group meeting date. Guidance for completing the application form: General comment Please try to answer every question, by omitting answers you may hold up your application. Section 1 Organisation Details These are details about your group/organisation. This will help the sub Group to understand who you are and what you do within the local community. The UKPRN number is a registration with the UK register of all providers of adult education. There is no cost to register and the website for registering can be found at Your organisation is not required to be a member of the Locality Working Group, but this will assist you in detailing the local need and understanding local priorities. It is strongly recommended that groups take an active part in their Locality Working Group. Details of these can be found at or Julie Staniforth. An application that does not detail the members of the management committee will not be considered. CLT guidance 4 th June

3 An application that has not been approved by your group/organisation will not be considered. A group/organisation that does not hold a minimum 2 signatory bank account will not be considered. Providers must, as a minimum, hold insurance at the following levels: Public Liability Insurance of not less than 2 million (two million pounds sterling) in respect of any one occurrence; and Employers Liability Insurance of not less than 5 million (five million pounds sterling) in respect of any single claim or series of claims made in respect of any incident If and to the extent that the activity includes the provision of professional advice by the Provider, professional indemnity insurance in respect of any one occurrence will be required. A group/organisation that can not provide evidence of the policies listed will not be considered. A group/organisation that can not provide evidence of the insurances listed will not be considered. A group/organisation that can not provide evidence of their accounts will not be considered. A group/organisation that does not/will not carry out risk assessments will not be considered. Details of where you heard about the funding will help us in our marketing of the fund in subsequent years so please give us as much information as you can. A group/organisation without a constitution or set of rules will not be considered. If your organisation has an Adult and Community Learning service main contract you will need to explain why you cannot use that contract funding to deliver this project. Section 2 Teaching and Learning Anyone delivering courses funded by the Responsiveness Fund need to hold or be working towards a registered teaching qualification, for example the initial teaching qualification of Preparation for Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS), a Certificate or Diploma in teaching in the lifelong learning sector or equivalent. All tutors must have completed safeguarding training within the last 2 years. Section 3 The Project CLT guidance 4 th June

4 In this section you need to explain the activity or project that you aim to deliver. In the overview and content you should try to tell us: Why you are delivering the activity How you have identified the local need How the project relates to the county and local priorities and BIS objectives found in the appendices attached to the application form What you hope to achieve Who the activity is aimed at How you intend to deliver it, for example 2 hours a week for 3 weeks The venue you plan to use to deliver When you plan to deliver it. Please note that the activity needs to be complete no later than 31 st July Activities can be single short courses or multiple activities. The sub Group need to establish the total number of learners you will be delivering to so please only count learners who are attending more than one activity once. How will you measure impact? Impact is not just about successfully achieving a learning outcome, but also about the impact on the learners life. How will you measure wider outcomes? Please indicate below how you will collect evidence of change from individual learners. Examples of measures are focus group at the end of the course, ILPs, learner diaries, surveys, interviews. Please note: projects will be expected to complete an impact measurement tracking sheet. Section 4 Target Learners In this section you need to tell us about the learners that you are going to target for your activity. There will be an expectation that you will be familiar with, and have a relationship with, the learner groups you are targeting and will not advertise for learners. Section 5 Progression of Learners The funding for the Responsiveness Fund is intended to help individuals from excluded and under represented groups into learning to help them into employment, voluntary work or further learning opportunities or become active members of their community through voluntary or paid activities. In this section you need to explain what you will do to help individual learners progress during and after their learning activity. The sub Group need to know what steps you will take to help learners to seek and secure employment, or progress into further learning or volunteering or participate further in community life. For example will you be involving other agencies in the learning activity, for instance Adult Advancement and Careers Service, Job Centre Plus, JET, local colleges and voluntary services. We will also need to know what referral processes you have in place to these organisations. CLT guidance 4 th June

5 Section 6 Costs of Project Funding levels: There is 250,000 available from this fund, 130,000 is allocated for third sector organisations only, 120,000 is allocated for any learning provider type (school, college, private provider, third sector etc). There is no minimum amount for a project although we would expect a small project to have a minimum of 8 learners. Fees: Charging your learners a fee is not mandatory although, where appropriate, we would encourage a fee to be considered at a level that is realistic for your learners or the partner organisation you are delivering to. You will need to identify the costs that you need to meet to deliver your activity- (a) on the costs table. Funding may be requested for payment of: Teaching staff Learning support in the classroom Childcare Carer support Learner travel costs (not including staff travel) Consumable and materials Equipment necessary to deliver the learning activity Venue costs The Responsiveness Fund should not be the only source of funding for the activity and you should indicate the amount of funding that you or another organisation is contributing -(c) on the costs table. Organisations funded through The Responsiveness Fund must not rely on this funding for their longterm survival. You are also asked to detail any in kind contribution you will make and assign it a monetary value - (b) on the costs table. The cost per learner is the amount of funding that you are asking for divided by the number of individual learners. The sub Group will seek to get the best value from this funding; they will therefore be looking to fund organisations who can deliver high quality learning at a competitive cost per learner. Section 7 Declaration Applications need to be signed by the person within the organisation who is authorised to claim the Responsiveness Fund. If applications are being sent electronically then a signed back page needs to be forwarded as soon as possible. CLT guidance 4 th June
