New funding rates for adult provision from academic year 2024 to 2025 will mean that the funding rate for digital skills qualifications will be increased.
New digital skills qualifications will be funded by the new band for ICT for users, which is £8.40, meaning funding for a 55 guided learning hour qualification will increase to £462 from the current £336.
However, functional skills courses in English and maths will not see any base increase.
The new rates will apply to ESFA grant funded and procured provision, with devolved areas setting their own rates.
