LLE Planning & Awareness Programme - Cancelled

Due to public sector guidelines on communications during the pre-election period, we're unable to undertake our Lifelong Learning Entitlement (LLE) Planning & Awareness Regional Seminar Events at this time. We regret any inconvenience this may cause. If you have already made a booking, or registered on the waiting list for one of the events your booking will automatically be cancelled.

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.

Advanced Learner Loan 2024/25 online application service will open on 10 June

The ALL 2024/25 online application service for courses starting from 1 August 2024 will be available from 10 June 2024. Learners will need their Learning and Funding Information Letter (LAFIL) to make an application. When you issue LAFILs to learners, please tell them that they can only submit applications once the service launches on 10 June. You must not issue LAFILs to learners until your loan facility is visible on the LP Portal. You can view and download the suggested EFSA LAFIL template below.
