    Good afternoon

    Would anyone be able to tell me how you draw down the funding for learners with EHCP’s?

    We are a study programme provider and currently have 4 learners who hold a EHCP and we are unsure how to claim this additional funding?

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Many thanks



    Good morning,

    Can anyone advise on this?

    Hi Kate,
    This is normally part of your allocation based on lagged numbers, you do not specifically claim it but you should indicate any learners with an EHCP on the ILR.



    Further to Martin’s post above, if you don’t have an element 2 funding allocation from the ESFA then the funding would normally be drawn down via your local authority once you’ve reached an agreement with them.

    You can only indicate a learner has high needs on the ILR if you receive Element 3 from your LA. See below:

    “This field is only completed for 16-19 (excluding Apprenticeships) funded students where a local authority has actually paid element 3 ‘top-up’ funding for a student whose agreed learning support costs are greater than £6,000. It must not be used in any other circumstances, for example, where costs are less than or equal to £6,000 or where the local authority has made no in-year contribution to the costs even if they are judged/agreed to be greater than £6,000.”
