    Can anyone tell me if we are allowed to do this? So for a learning aim that would normally be co-funded, we have a learner who is not eligible (they haven’t been in the country long enough) who is willing to pay for the course. Is there anything stopping us from doing this – if so, can you please point me at the documentation because I can’t find it.



    Hi Alastair

    Yes, it’s absolutely fine to do this. I don’t think it’s explicit in the Rules because they’re about funding and this learner isn’t fundable, so the Rules don’t apply, if you see what I mean?

    A lot of providers will have entirely discrete fullcost provision where no funding exists (English as a Foreign Language, for example), but it’s fine to do it for individual learners as well.

    Just set them as Funding Model 99 in the ILR.

    Lovely, thanks for the info.
