    What do other providers use their discretionary bursary for? Can you let me know if anyone gives learners an incentive from the discretionary bursary fund for attendance?
    Thanks

    Hi Fran

    We use it for anything that we consider to be a barrier to learning. I do not think it can be used as an incentive. If learners struggle to attend due to issues with travel ie if they live in rural areas, we can use it to ensure they get to the centre. We will pay travel to learners who, whilst at school, were getting free school meals as that is an indication that they are below the threshold.
