The first stage of the consultation on the review of post 16 qualifications at level 3 and below set out the Department for Education’s intention to remove approval for funding of qualifications with low and no publicly funded enrolments.
On 14 December 2020, the Department for Education set out its process to deliver this and confirm which qualifications with low or no publicly funded enrolments should have approval for public funding withdrawn for new starts from 1 August 2022.
Awarding organisations must notify the Department for Education about qualifications that they believe should remain approved for funding for the 2022 to 2023 funding year, in line with specific criteria. The notification period closes at 23:59 on 5 March 2021.
