Skills Funding Agency

An executive agency and a body that is now defunct, also called SFA

The functions of this former public authority have been taken on by the Education and Skills Funding Agency to which all requests should now be directed. The Skills Funding Agency was an Executive Agency. The role of the Skills Funding Agency was to fund adult skills, training and apprenticeships in England. Its services included the National Apprenticeship Service, the Data Service, the Learning Records Service and the secretariat to the information authority.

History
The Chief Executive of Skills Funding was a corporation sole – a statutory office created in 2010 under the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009. Under the Act, the Chief Executive could appoint people in the civil service. These employees were commonly and collectively referred to as the Skills Funding Agency. The Skills Funding Agency took over some of the work of the Learning and Skills Council, which closed on 31 March 2010. Section 64 of the Deregulation Act 2015 abolished the statutory post of Chief Executive of Skills Funding and transferred the property, rights and liabilities to the Secretary of State.

This authority no longer exists, so you cannot make a request to it.

I'm appreciative of the information, but not being able to explain why these payments abided by the state aid rules is worrying.
