  • be 16 years of age or older on 31 August 2023,
  • be a settled, legal, UK resident for at least 3 years; or meet the conditions of residence in the Learner Eligibility Guide for post-16 funding (details in the policy on the website),
  • confirm that it would be difficult to access your studies without support from the Fund due to financial considerations being a barrier.


It's possible to receive assistance with costs such as

  • childcare
  • examination fees
  • resources (e.g. books, equipment)
