Growth requests – performance management point 2

We are approaching the second and final Advanced Learner Loan performance management review point for AY 2020/21. To be considered for growth, the value of approved, attended and paid loans must be at least 90% of your total facility.

If you do not meet these criteria (in paragraphs 161.1 to 161.4 of the funding rules) but need growth, you should contact your ESFA territorial team lead and complete the exceptional case template by Thursday 14 January.

You can find more information about Advanced Learner Loans facility requests on GOV.UK.

Attendance confirmation

You must submit any outstanding attendance confirmations by close of business on Thursday 14 January to ensure payment on Wednesday 20 January. Please check that your learners' details are correct and up to date, especially if you are submitting an initial attendance confirmation.

You will also need to action any changes to learners' circumstances by 14 January.

For more guidance please see the Attendance section of the Learning Provider Portal user guide.
