1 24+ Advanced Learning Loans Eligibility Rules - a recap Skills Funding Agency 3 rd July 2013 Welcome

2 Key Facts 24+ Advanced Learning Loans (Loans) have been introduced for learning beginning in the 2013/14 academic year Available for learners: aged 24 and above at the start of the course studying at advanced or higher levels Not means-tested and not subject to credit checks Student Loans Company, under Student Finance England (SFE) brand will administer Loans Loans paid directly to the approved provider not via the learner Individuals who progress from an Access to HE Diploma course to complete an HE programme can have their outstanding 24+ Advanced Learning Loan for the Access course written off.

3 Learners Loans are available for: Learners aged 24 and over are resident in the UK and undertaking eligible provision at an approved college or training organisation in England have not previously had a Loan to do the same qualification type and level of qualification. Exemptions Trade union representatives studying Trade Union Congress learning aims and; ex-military personnel. In this case, we have an agreement with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) to fund ex-military personnel for their first full level-3 qualification.

4 Qualifications The Skills Funding Agency publishes information on all eligible qualifications in the Qualification Catalogue. For 24+ Advanced Learning Loans these include: Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) Access to HE Diplomas Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) Level 3 Certificates QCF Level 3 Diplomas QCF Level 4 Certificates QCF Level 4 Diplomas A-levels/AS/A2s Advanced Apprenticeship Frameworks, and Higher Apprenticeship Frameworks.

5 Providers In order to offer 24+ Advanced Learning Loans funding to individuals providers will be approved on the Agency's Training Organisation Register Be in receipt of an Adult Skills Budget (ASB) contract The Agency has published a list of those providers who have a Loans facility on the Agency s website. Subcontracting arrangements Subject to normal Agency rules All Agency and SLC engagement will be through the prime/lead provider. Subcontractors should discuss Loans with their relevant lead provider.

6 Number of Loans A maximum of four Loans over a lifetime. The four Loans can be used for any combination of the eligible qualifications Only one Loan for each qualification type Only access one Loan at anytime The only exception to this rule is in the case of AS/A2/A levels where an individual is entitled to make a Loan application for each separate AS/A2/A level, up to a maximum of 4. These applications can be made at the same time or one after the other.

7 Loan Funding The Loan is intended to fund all costs and charges for items which a learner cannot complete their course without. Loans will be equal to, or less than, the Skills Funding Agency published funding rate, with a minimum value of 300. For Advanced and Higher Apprenticeships the Loan is available for up to 50% of the total rate to reflect the contribution from employers.

8 Evidence Required In addition to the Learning Agreement, the Agency will require evidence of a completed Learning and Funding Information Letter for each learner. The letter provides the individual with: Information about the course and cost of their studies Detail on how to pay Where to find further information What to do if they wish to apply for a Loan. Without the letter individuals will be unable to apply. Template letters are available via the Micro-site

Brian has accessed his maximum entitlement of four loans and the application is therefore declined.

12 Sam Application 4 Application 5 Higher Apprenticeship in Plumbing Higher Apprenticeship in Plumbing Sam is made redundant before the completion of his Higher Apprenticeship in Plumbing and cannot find a job to complete his framework. The loan is suspended for 12 months and payments to the provider stopped. After 12months Sam has not found suitable employment, the learning is assumed to be terminated and the loan moves into repayment. Sam is liable for the loan payments made to date. 18 months later Sam gains employment with another organisation who will support the completion of his Higher Apprenticeship. Under compelling personal reasons and subject to suitable evidence the SLC will approve another Loan for the continuation of the same framework.

Freya is able to use a fifth and final loan to support her completion of a programme of A-levels.
