E2E/Foundation Learning Workshop

Friday 8 January 2010

Presented to: Providers of E2E & Foundation Learning By: LSC Young People’s Learning Division



E2E transfer to

Local Authorities


e2e transfer to local authorities 1
E2E Transfer to Local Authorities (1)
  • Apprenticeship, Children, Skills & Learning Act:
      • Local authorities to undertake contract management and payments from 1 April 2010.
      • Existing 16-19 contracts and financial memoranda to be transferred.
      • Non-Independent Private Providers will be transferred to ‘home’ local authority who will act as ‘Lead Commissioner’.
e2e transfer to local authorities 2
E2E Transfer to Local Authorities (2)
  • Independent Private Providers – West Midlands Approach:
      • LSC and 14 local authorities discussed the distribution of providers.
      • Providers will be allocated to a particular local authority who will act as ‘Lead Commissioner’ on behalf of a Sub-Regional Grouping:
      • Majority of providers currently operate in a particular area or existing LSC sub-region.
e2e transfer to local authorities 3
E2E Transfer to Local Authorities (3)
  • Independent Private Providers – West Midlands Approach:
      • For providers who currently operate in more than one sub-region, or across the West Midlands, it means the existing single regional contracting arrangements will come to an end.
      • These providers will be allocated contracts for each existing sub-region where they operate.
terminology 1
Terminology (1)
  • Local authorities’ role as Lead Commissioners:
      • Ensure there is sufficient provision for all who learn in local authority areas.
      • Ensure that there is high quality, relevant provision.
      • Commissioning through provider dialogue:
          • Discussing current performance in terms of volumes, mix and balance of provision and quality.
          • Discussing the contribution institutions can make to 16-19 Commissioning priorities and plans.
      • Applying the funding methodology to allocations.
      • Work in Sub-Regional Groupings to review and moderate commissioning plans.
terminology 2
Terminology (2)
  • Local authorities’ role as Lead Commissioners:
      • Arrangements should not prevent providers from undertaking existing recruitment patterns within a sub-region.
      • Lead Commissioner agreed by looking at:
          • Where the majority of learners recruited are normally resident.
          • Existing delivery sites.
          • Minor adjustments to ensure a spread of responsibilities across all local authorities.
      • Arrangements should continue for the 2010/11 academic year with allocations for the delivery of Foundation Learning.
transfer example 1
Transfer example (1)
  • Therefore:
      • Provider A - currently contracted to deliver in the Birmingham & Solihull LSC area only:
      • 2008/09 Starts:
          • 70 Birmingham Residents.
          • 20 Solihull Residents.
          • 2 Sandwell Residents.
      • Main delivery site in Birmingham.
      • Therefore contract will transfer to Birmingham City Council as Lead Commissioner within the Birmingham and Solihull SRG.
transfer example 2
Transfer example (2)
  • Therefore:
      • Provider B - currently contracted to deliver in Birmingham & Solihull and The Black Country LSC areas:
      • 2008/09 Starts:
          • 10 Birmingham Residents, 40 Solihull Residents.
          • 20 Sandwell Residents, 50 Dudley Residents.
      • Delivery sites in Birmingham and Dudley.
      • Existing single MCV disaggregated:
          • Proportion will transfer to Solihull MBC as Lead Commissioner within the Birmingham and Solihull SRG.
          • Proportion will transfer to Dudley MBC as Lead Commissioner with the Black Country SRG.
mandatory actions 1
Mandatory Actions (1)
  • Change to the ILR:
      • For Independent Private Providers only.
      • Field L25 (LSC number of funding LSC) will need to align with new Lead Commissioner arrangements.
      • ALL young people who have been on E2E during 2009/10 (including learners that have left and are no longer live) with your L02 file will need their corresponding L25 Field amending.
      • Deadline for changes: Monday 1 February 2010.
mandatory actions 2
Mandatory Actions (2)
  • Sub-Regional Profiling:
      • For all providers of E2E.
      • Due to the timing of the transfer, third quarter adjustments will be ‘waived’.
          • Therefore extremely limited opportunity for subsequent in-year adjustments until fourth quarter.
      • Profiles inherited by local authorities need to be accurate.
      • Providers are therefore required to undertake a profiling exercise to reflect new arrangements.
      • Note: Profiling of existing total MCVs only.
      • Deadline for changes: Monday 15 January 2010.
mandatory actions 3
Mandatory Actions (3)
  • E2E Community Placements (1):
      • Funding confirmed for 2010/11 Financial Year.
      • Confirm profiled delivery, by new arrangements:
          • For the remainder of 2009/10 Financial Year, plus
          • Suggested profile for delivery from April 2010 to March 2011.
      • Not all providers currently do Community Placements. If you are not an existing deliverer this is an opportunity to express an interest.
      • Deadline for submissions: Monday 15 January 2010.
mandatory actions 4
Mandatory Actions (4)
  • E2E Community Placements (2):
      • For existing providers of Community Placements only.
      • Contractual returns for November 2009 to January 2010 due – Annex C: Report and Claim Form.
      • Deadline for submissions: Friday 5 February 2010.

14-19 Aspects
  • Foundation learning will form one of the four national routes.
  • Current arrangements for learners at entry level and level:
      • For example, in terms of the Key Stage 4 Engagement Programme and E2E will be integrated within Foundation Learning.
  • Progression is usually expected to be one of the three other national routes, in particular Diplomas or Apprenticeships.

Entry Level 2

Identify appropriate QCF vocational qualifications for inclusion in FL based programmes.

Brief IAG teams to identify learners suited to your first FL based programmes.

Bring together an FL implementation group.

Produce an FL implementation plan and CPD programme for staff.

Use the FL qualifications catalogue to identify appropriate QCF qualifications for accrediting vocational and PSD learning.

How do we build ourfirst FL offer? (1)

Use the National Database of Accredited Qualifications to explore the units available and the ones you plan to offer from your preferred qualifications.

Where possible replace Key Skills and adult literacy and numeracy qualifications with functional skills for 16-19 learners.

Consider the flexibility offered by some of the employability type qualifications that can accredit PSD and vocational taster type learning.

Consider the benefits of a cross-centre approach to accrediting PSD.

Ensure your FL offer reflects the entry criteria for your level 2 programmes, these may need to be revised.

Modes of Delivery

funding foundation learning fl 1
Funding FoundationLearning [FL] (1)
  • 2010/11 E2E will ‘disappear’:
      • 16-18 Learner Responsive budget only.
      • Foundation Learning as one of the four 14-19 curriculum pathways.
      • Maximum Contract Values (allocations) and profile payments remain.
      • Qualifies for Additional Learning Support (ALS).
          • Separate allocation, no longer ‘within the SLN value’.
funding foundation learning fl 2
Funding FoundationLearning [FL] (2)
  • Overview:
      • Three curriculum areas:
          • Vocational knowledge skills & understanding.
          • Functional Skills.
          • Personal and Social Development learning
      • Elements (Learning Aims) funding through SLNs.
          • Is the qualification on the ‘Qualifications Catalogue’?
          • Learning Aims Database (LAD) gives: GLH, Credits, Programme Weighting and SLN value.
      • If SLN is missing then: GLH/450.
funding fl 3
Funding FL (3)
  • 16-18 years olds funded for ‘Entitlement’ if full-time.
      • Entitlement SLN is: 0.25 SLN, within the overall cap of 1.75 SLN.
      • Full time is defined as being on a course of 450 GLH (1 SLN) or more in a year. 450 GLH includes the ‘Entitlement’ of 114 GLH.
      • Therefore other qualifications in the learners programme must total 336 GLH (0.75 SLN).
      • Includes tutorial and enrichment.
      • Must be registered on the ILR.

Funding FL (7)
  • Standard Learner Number (SLN)


  • National Funding Rate (or Transitional Rate)

[16-18 Learner Responsive: £2,920 in 2009/10]


  • Provider Factor

[Area Cost; Programme Weighting; Disadvantage; Success Factor;

Short Programme Modifier; Long Term Residential/Care Standards]


  • Additional Learning Support (ALS)


  • Funding Allocation (£)
funding fl 8
Funding FL (8)
  • Worked Example (cont’d):
      • Funding = SLN x 16-18 Learner Responsive Rate x Provider Factor + ALS.
      • Funding = 1.18 [total SLN] x £2,920 x 1.23 [average provider factor across E2E providers] = £4,238.
      • Plus ALS: say £245 per SLN (the equivalent funding for a learner with 2 F grades in GCSE English and Maths) = £245 x 1.18SLNs = £253
  • Remember!:
      • SLN (and therefore funding) is spread between Start Date and End Date and can be ‘annualised’.
      • Average E2E learners’ programme = 0.92 SLNs.
what do i get now
What do I get now?
  • E2E (example only):
      • Funding = SLN x 16-18 Learner Responsive Rate x Provider Factor.
      • SLN Weekly Value = 0.037 x £2,920 x 1.23 (1.0890 [ave. disadvantage factor] x 1 [area uplift] x 1.3 [programme weighting] x 0.87 [ave. success factor]) = £150.30
      • Enhanced Bonus = 0.062 x £2,920 x 1.23 = £222.68.
      • Basic Bonus = 0.126 x £2,920 x 1.23 = £452.54.
  • Therefore on average:
      • £150.33 x 22 weeks [length of stay], plus £905.08 (two basic bonuses) = £4,212.34.
measuring fl 1
Measuring FL (1)
  • Now:
      • Measured by achievement of qualifications (A35).
          • Standard Qualification Success Rate (QSR) method applies
          • Beware of Start and End Dates
      • Evaluated by destination/progression (A50/L39).
  • Future?
      • Measure achievement of progression/destination?
      • Measure value added by Credit Success Rate?
  • Plus
      • Cost per learner, compared to baseline.
measuring fl 2
Measuring FL (2)
  • Applying the Qualification Success Rate (QSR) in
  • an Individual Learning Plan (1):
      • Must be a ‘Start’ to qualify for SLN:
      • Once started you also ‘count’ towards Success Rates

Measuring FL (3)
  • Applying the QSR in an Individual Learning Plan (2):

recording fl
Recording FL
  • Recorded as a Programme Level Aim (A15).
  • Each qualification recorded as a Learning Aim (A09).
  • Record entitlement (A09) [CMISC001].
  • Record credits to be achieved (A59).
  • Record credits achieved (A60).
  • Record achievement of each qualification (A35).
  • Record reason learning ended (A50).
  • Record destination (L39).
  • Learner Responsive Provider Support Manual:
  • What do we need to change?
      • Funding is truly individual.
      • Funding to better reflect the flexibility of the QCF.
      • Framework for Excellence to reflect FLT across indicators, measures and success rates.
          • Targets redefined in the context of the QCF?
          • Achievement of credit as a measure (where applicable)?
      • Greater stress on prior achievement – funding recognises the starting point of the learner.
      • Impact on planning, analysis, data collection and tracking.
