In-depth webinar: Claiming Apprenticeship Learning Support Funding with confidence – Dec

December 8, 2023 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm


Providers often lack confidence in claiming Learning Support Funding (LSF). Added to this, ESFA funding rules around learning support included some significant changes.

That’s why – led by our compliance expert David Lockhart Hawkins – we’re hosting a packed 2-hour webinar session to look at the rules and evidence needed to claim LSF funding with confidence.

Demonstrating practical examples of what is needed to support a claim, David will take you through:

  • The 23/24 Funding Rules for learning support
  • Identifying barriers to learning
  • Needs Assessment
  • Support Planning
  • Support Review
  • Funding claim controls
  • Compliance management
  • Best Practice

Attendees will also receive a detailed slide pack and a free Learning Support Review template to use month to month with your apprentices.

In addition to this, David has created Needs Assessment and Support Plan templates that can be purchased at a reduced rate alongside the session (see below). If you’d value a one-to-one session with David to chat through your own challenges / approach to learner support, this can be booked below too.

This webinar takes place on Tuesday 8 December 2023 (10.30am-12.30pm)

Can’t make the date / time? Book anyway and we’ll send you the full recording and materials.
