We're working with the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) to confirm continued support for our vocational qualifications from our customers and the employers they work with to ensure that these qualifications remain eligible for the 19+ funding. As part of this process we've been asked by the Agency to include letters that demonstrate industry recognition of these qualifications.

There is a number of qualifications where we still require letters of recognition from providers or employers in order to make a submission to SFA for 19+ funding approval. The type of support required is indicated in the above table.

If your centre can help to obtain letters of support for any of these qualifications, please contact us.
