Save the Date - Lifelong Learning Entitlement Planning & Awareness Programme

If you are intending to join the OfS Register between 2024 and 2027, or if you envisage entering a franchise arrangement with a provider already on the Register, then this programme is likely to be of significant benefit to you. We're planning to open registration for this programme by late April 2024. You can find more details via our events website below.

Lifelong Learning Entitlement - OfS update

A third category of registration was due to be introduced by the Office for Students (OfS) to provide an approach for smaller providers offering level 4 and 5 qualifications. The Government has decided to allow these providers longer to prepare for registration with OfS to allow access to the LLE. To support this, the Government is extending existing advanced learner loan funding for a further 2 years until 2027, for providers who have not registered with OfS under either of the 2 existing categories.

Register now - Learning Provider Portal training events

We intend to deliver 6 one-day Learning Provider Portal training events in May 2024. These events will cover several areas and are meant for all approved Learning Provider managers and staff who would benefit from training. They're suitable for new providers, new staff or those who attended the recent portal training for beginners and want to expand their knowledge. The events will be held in London, Birmingham, Exeter, Newcastle, and Sheffield. You can register now via our Events website below.
