    We have a learner who doesn’t meet the groups contained in sections E4 to E7 of the common funding rules as unemployed.
    He receives income support and carers allowance, totalling approx. £130 per week. Section E8 allows us to, at our discretion, fund learners if they receive other benefits and earn less than 16 times NMW or £330 pm. Do we consider the carers allowance to be money ‘earned’ or consider that the learner receives benefits and actually earns nothing?


    As I understand it, income support counts as “other benefit” so he would be eligible for full funding if the other conditions are met.
