Learning Provider Bulletin- Consultation on Expansion of FE Loans - June 2014

30 June 2014

The Government published a consultation 'Further Education - Future Development of Loans' on 19 June 2014.  This consultation is seeking views on a central proposal to expand the scope of loans in the Further Education sector to cover 19-23 year olds and to make loans available for level 2 qualifications where learners are not entitled to full grant funding.

In addition to the proposed expansion, the consultation document explores certain ideas which may help to simplify the loans funding framework, and to create greater coherence between Further Education and Higher Education loans systems.
