Lead Arrangements for general Further Education Colleges and Sixth Form Colleges


In response to the request in the Skills Strategy and Spending Review, the Skills Funding Agency and YPLA have been working together to develop lead arrangements for general further education (FE) colleges and sixth form colleges.  Under the new arrangements these colleges will deal with a single agency for funding agreement, performance management, audit and intervention.

This will be the YPLA for sixth form colleges and the Skills Funding Agency for general FE colleges.  Colleagues across the two agencies have been working together to ensure the internal processes are in place to accommodate these arrangements. A single financial memorandum part 1 will be developed for further education colleges.  A letter to general FE colleges and sixth form colleges explaining the new arrangements together with a briefing note is now available.
