I’ve been reading the funding rules about Learner Support and got very excited that we could receive some financial support for learners who really need it. The rules go into a lot of details of who it is used for so I thought we might be able to support more learners.
However, as I look at the EAS guidance in preparation for February it says only 19-24 traineeships and apprenticeships before 2017 can be supported. Seems very odd that this isn’t in the funding rules. Am I missing something? We have an AEB budget for 19+ learners.
