The ESFA brings together the former responsibilities of the Education Funding Agency (EFA) and Skills Funding Agency (SFA) to create a single agency accountable for funding education and skills for children, young people and adults.
~ Is accountable for £58 billion of funding for the education and training sector, providing assurance that public funds are properly spent, achieves value for money for the tax payer and delivers the policies and priorities set by the Secretary of State
~ Regulates academies, further education and sixth-form colleges, and training providers, intervening where there is risk of failure or where there is evidence of mismanagement of public funds
~ Delivers major projects and operates key services in the education and skills sector, such as school capital programmes, the National Careers Service, the National Apprenticeship Service and the Learning Records Service
The ESFA business plan for the financial year 2018 to 2019 sets out the priorities and actions for the agency.
ESFA aims to continuously improve the services we offer in pursuit of excellence. To help us do this we have a customer commitment. It shows you, our customers, how you can expect to see us work. It also helps us to increase our understanding of your needs and focus our work.
