SFA Funding

Jim Dickinson made this Freedom of Information request to Liverpool Community College

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

This request has been withdrawn by the person who made it. There may be an explanation in the correspondence below.

Dear Liverpool Community College,

You will be aware that paragraph 12 of the SFA Funding Rules 2012/13 is newly revised and states that “Where the Agency has made a full contribution to the costs of a Learner’s programme, Providers must not make compulsory charges to employers or Learners for any delivery of the learning activity funded by the Agency.
This includes: administration, registration, assessment, materials or examination costs whether incurred directly by the Provider or charged by other organisations such as awarding organisations. This includes charges for identification passes, uniforms, tools and material where without them, a learner cannot complete and achieve their learning aim.”

Please can you provide me with the following information:

1. The estimated cost to the college of implementing these requirements in the year ahead
2. Copies of any papers, including at Corporation level, pertaining to the implementation of these requirements
3. Can you make clear whether you are intending to apply these standards to other provision in the college, and specifically whether you intend to implement for EFA funded provision

You will also be aware of changes to the required Instrument & Articles for the college that give it freedom to adopt new structures and practices.

Please can you provide me with the following information:

1. The number of student members of the corporation at present
2. The existing methodology in use for their appointment/selection/election
3. If there are any plans to change the number, or methodology for their appointment/selection/election"

Any Qs let me know

Jim

Yours faithfully,

Jim Dickinson

Please note that there is no requirment for a requestor to complete any hard copy form!

Liverpool Community College should proceed with any valid request, whether a hardcopy form is completed or not.

The reply from the college implies that it is a requirment but it is NOT.

The college needs to get full legal advice on its current position.
