SFA Funding

We're waiting for Jim Dickinson to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Abingdon and Witney 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

Yours faithfully,

Jim Dickinson

Dear Lisa Biddell and Jim Dickinson
In July and August 2012 you made tow identical requests for information to the College. If appears the second was made because the original request delivery failed.

As the "What do they know" website records that the original request is still awaiting response, I attach here the response made on 14 September 2013, which was within the 20 day period in the context of the second request.

Yours sincerely
Ruth Reavley
Clerk to the Corporation Governors
